The ‘Canteign’ is somewhere you can buy food and drink during break and lunch. There is a variety of hot food including pizza slices, filled paninis, pasties, sausage rolls and muffins. The cold selection includes fruit, salad, pasta pots, sandwiches and baguettes.

Please see the sample menu below. For our weekly menu please contact the School Administrator.

We also have a ‘Snack Shack’ open to students at break time and lunchtime for all those students not wanting a main meal but just to grab something on the go. This helps to relieve traffic in the canteen at busy periods.

Where possible the canteen uses fresh produce from
Abbrook Farm.


Teign School has a cashless catering system. Eash student has the opportunity to use biometrics to pay for their school meals. The Biometric system allows your son or daughter to purchase food from the ‘Canteign’ on a credit basis which means they do not have to carry cash around each day. Their accounts can be ‘topped up’ online via Parentpay or at the cash machine in the ‘Canteign’ during breakfast service, morning break service and lunch service.


Topping up your child’s Biometric account is easy. It can be done through the Parent Pay website. If you are already registered then login as usual, if not then please contact reception to enquire about registering.
