Carlton le Willows Academy

Nothing but the best

School Canteen – provided by Innovate

The school’s catering contract is managed by Innovate Services Ltd.

It has been a busy few months here at Innovate. As well as continuing to serve up our great selection of freshly prepared food over the summer term, the team have been busy looking at how we make our offer even better for the new academic year. We talked to students, toured inspiring street food markets, visited high street restaurants with exciting healthy options and vegetarian ranges, and spoke to our suppliers about what hot new products they have in their store cupboards. All to develop our exciting and healthy new menu for you to enjoy from September 2018.

Please note that Main Meal prices are £2.30
