The Academy Canteen

We operate a cashless system for purchasing your food, using a fingerprint recognition system at the till. Depositing money into a validating machine tops up your credit. Alcester Academy is subscribed to School Gateway, an online payment system linked to your School Gateway account. The system enables parents/carers to top up dinner money online by credit or debit card. Students can also bring in money (coins) and put them in the top up machine in the canteen. The canteen is open for a Breakfast Club, from 8.15 - 8.40am, during morning break and at lunchtime.
