Penryn College in partnership with Chartwells (part of the Compass Group UK) are dedicated to providing nourishing, appetising food for the pupils.

Chartwells know it’s not just the food on the plate that is important but a real understanding of health and nutrition too. Their simple set of commitments – Eat, Learn, Live – helps to educate young people about how to have a happy, safe and healthy lifestyle while contributing to a sustainable world.

Penryn College has been awarded “Healthy School” status again for 2016, with the health and wellbeing of the pupils being of paramount importance.

The menu is compliant with the school food standards and we encourage pupils to enjoy a healthy balanced diet. Chartwells can cater for many special dietary requirements. Please speak to the Catering Manager if you have any questions.

Cool drinking water is available from many of the fountains around the school for pupils to top up during the day.
