School Meals

School Meals

Our canteen serves a wide variety of hot and cold snacks and meals at breakfast, break time and lunchtime.


At South Wirral High School we operate a cashless catering system.  Students are issued with swipe cards that they can top up using machines in our school canteen area.


You can now apply for free school meals online by completing a short form using the links below. For each successful application, our school receives additional pupil premium funding, which could go towards equipment, resources, trips or uniform discounts.
