Canteen

We would love your child to eat in the Longhill Canteen.  We offer a nutritionally-balanced, reasonably- priced selection of breakfasts, lunches, snacks and drinks, which we think cater for all tastes.   You will find 4 different weekly menus, together with corresponding information on allergens.  If you have any particular questions that aren’t covered on here, please email us at canteen@longhill.org.uk

Paying for School Meals

We are a cashless school. We use biometric finger scanners which are linked to an online sQuid account to pay for food. All parents/carers are provided with a sQuid account number when your child starts at the school and payment is quick and easy to set up. If you receive free school meals, the money is added to your account ready for lunch time every day.

Paying online means that you avoid having to send in cheques, or you or your child bringing cash into school.  sQuid is a secure online payment system that can be used to pay for school trips, lunches and any other expenses that may be incurred at school.

If you need assistance setting sQuid up or have misplaced the sQuid account number please email cashless@longhill.org.uk and we will be pleased to help you.

Theme Day Menus

At Longhill High School we strive to feed our students a well-balanced diet, at an affordable price. We believe that food is also a wonderful vehicle for learning and endeavour to introduce new foods which are delicious and fun to eat. We hope you enjoy our themes and we are always welcoming new ideas for the next year.

America Day Menu

According to legend, a cook named Joe at Floyd Angell’s café in Sioux City, Iowa, added tomato sauce to his “loose meat” sandwiches and the “sloppy joe” sandwich was born. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Stroganoff Day Menu

The commonly accepted history of Beef Stroganoff is that a French chef who worked for a wealthy St. Petersburg family created the dish for a cooking contest in 1891. Following the Russian custom of the day, he named the prize-winning dish for his employer, Count Pavel Alexandrovich Stroganov.

Al A King Menu

Chef George Greenwald of the Brighton Beach Hotel in Brighton Beach created it in 1898, naming it after patron E. Clarke King II and his wife. Another account is that chicken à la King was created in the 1890s by hotel cook William “Bill” King of the Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia.

Nacho Day Menu

Nachos were invented by a (now-legendary) maître d’ named Ignacio Anaya, who whipped up the first batch for a group of hungry U.S. military wives at a restaurant called the Victory Club in Piedras Negras, Mexico, near Fort Duncan. He fried up some tortilla chips, topped them with some shredded Cheddar and sliced jalapeños, and served them as canapés. He named them after his nickname, Nacho.
