Eating at Chepstow

Chepstow School offers a wide range of delicious and healthy meal options. £2.10 is sufficient to purchase a meal in the school canteen.

Breakfast items are available between 8:15am - 8:45am and healthy snacks during break and lunch.

The school canteen opening times:

  • Morning: 08.15am - 08.45am
  • Break: 11.05am -11.25am
  • Lunch: 1.25pm - 2.15pm

Cashless Catering

Chepstow School operates a cashless system within our canteen, so students purchase food or drink through their fingerprint.

The cashless system is linked to ParentMail which enables parents to add money to their child's account. Instructions on how to do this can be found at the bottom of this page. If you prefer not to add money online using the ParentMail system, it is possible for students to use a specialised 'self-service' unit located by the student entrance, which will enable your child to add cash to their accounts themselves. The self-service machine will accept banknotes (£5, £10, £20) and most coins, this will update the students account immediately.

If a student is eligible for Free school meals, their account will be credited with the cost of a meal of the day (currently £2.00) which they will be able to access at lunchtime only.
