Eating well together is a central part of the school day at HNS.
- Students and staff eat lunch with each other
- On tables of 6 or 8, each student and one staff member bring different parts of the meal to the table, family-style
- There are no packed lunches allowed to make sure that all students eat well, affordably
- All meals are paid for in advance by parents or FSM entitlement. We won't discriminate between those who can and can't afford to pay
As well as lunch, HNS provides breakfast from 7.30 to 7.55, a morning break snack of fruit, fresh water and afternoon tea of a light, warm snack such as soup or home-baked cookies.
Eating well together is very important to us.
Our vision for Hackney New School is to provide students with access to the widest range of opportunities in life by fostering academic excellence and instilling self-belief, intellectual curiosity and responsibility towards others in society.
