Located on the ground floor of the North Building adjacent to the terrace and playing field, Dragon Dining offer a fresh, creative, nutritious and environmentally responsible approach to school food. 

At Dragon Dining, we understand the importance of nutritious and well-balanced meals in supporting your child's growth and development. Our team of dedicated chefs and staff are committed to creating an environment that fosters healthy eating habits while ensuring the highest standards of food quality and safety. All our meals are prepared daily on site with weekly menus featuring dishes from around the world. We are proud to offer a wide range of western, Asian, vegan and vegetarian choices. Focusing on fresh, regionally sourced ingredients – including some vegetables and herbs grown on campus in collaboration with students, we relish the opportunity to create from scratch, beautiful & natural meals from simple high quality ingredients. We also provide very reasonably priced freshly brewed Segafredo coffee and oven-fresh breads and pastries at The Street Café  located in the play area between the two school buildings.
