Food and Nutrition

Our food is a particular area of excellence at Bishopstrow.  Students and staff describe the food as “brilliant”, for both taste and nutritional value.  We offer food that is fresh and balanced, both hot and cold.  We believe that a student’s eating habits will directly affect their learning and this is one of the reasons why we ensure that the food provided is of a very high standard.  We can accommodate special dietary requirements and a tasty alternative will always be provided.

Students are accommodated on a full board basis, with breakfast, lunch and dinner, 7 days a week, included in the College’s fees.
