The Excel Academy

Lunchtime Arrangements


The Excel Academy uses Taylor Shaw hospitality service for students, teachers, parents and visitors. Manager, Steve, and his team produce a well-balanced menu choice each day. This consists of four food counters, ensuring our customers are provided with the best variety and choice. We also operate a breakfast club service and a mid-morning break service.

As an Academy we are passionate about meeting our students’ future health needs, this is why the menus we produce are in line with current legislation and allergy information.

We produce mainly fresh dishes complimented by a small choice of bought in products.

Traditional Counter – Our daily Meal Deal comprises of a choice of three main courses including a vegetarian option served with seasonable vegetables or salad.
Pasta Bar – A choice of meat and a vegetarian sauce with pasta. Plain pasta or pasta with cheese is also available.  We also serve jacket potato with a choice of fillings.
Pizza and Panini bar – We produce vegetarian and meat Panini daily as well as vegetarian pizza.  There is also a variety of meat toppings.
Street Food – Delicious marinated chicken served in a tortilla wrap with fresh salad and a choice of sauce.
Deli Bar – Here we serve ‘grab and go’ hot and cold deli products and sandwiches

We also provide freshly prepared homemade cakes, fresh fruit, yoghurts and drinks.

The Excel Academy operates a Biometric Cashless System which has a number of tools that are very useful, both to the customer and the Academy.  This will ensure customer confidentiality and make meal times more enjoyable. Queuing times will be reduced because customers will be able to add money to their account via the revalue machines, which are positioned near the dining area, from 7.30am each day until the end of lunch.

This system can provide a record of the dietary intake of each student if requested by parents. It also provides the Academy with important information, such as the take up of school meals and trading information.

This information will be regularly updated so please keep checking.
