We encourage students to follow a healthy and balanced diet, with a tasty set of options that incorporate many different flavours and types of cuisine.
Like all Harris Academies, we invest highly in the food we serve so that it exceeds the standards expected of schools. This is because we want students to be well fed and enjoy eating. We can cater to special dietary requirements students may have, so please let us know if this is the case.
Harris Girls' Academy Bromley use a cashless catering system that is linked to ParentPay. Over the first week of term, parents will receive activation letters explaining how to set up a ParentPay account.
