We hope that your daughter will enjoy lunch with us in the Café each day.

There is a small shop in The Holt Café which sells stationery items, padlocks and revision guides. Tickets for school events ie French Play, are also purchased this way.

Any amount of money can be paid into your daughter’s catering account via Wisepay or at a cash terminal point in the cafe, money spent on food will be debited to your daughter’s account and both you and she can check the balance remaining at any time by using the cash terminal in school or online through Wisepay. We have also incorporated a daily ‘spend limit’ into the system of £10 but this can be increased or decreased for an individual student by making a written request to the School Business Manager.

Free School Meals

If your child is eligible for Free School meals this information is automatically transferred to our Biometric system from the school system. The daily allowance is put on your child’s account every morning. Unused allowance is removed at the end of the day so that the allowance does not build up – it must be used daily. If you wish to add any of your own money to their account to purchase extra items such as drinks etc. you can do so by crediting your child’s account. The system ensures that the daily allowance is always used before starting to use any cash loaded on to the account.
