At the heart of Shirebrook Academy is Maz’s Place, a bright, modern dining area where students are provided with a wide selection of fresh food and drinks.  Students also have access to The Pod, an outside catering hub serving a variety of healthy snacks and refreshments, ideal for those quick bites on summer days.

Breakfast is served from 8.00am to 8.45am, selling a selection of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, toast and pastries along with hot and cold drinks.

Morning break gives students the opportunity to purchase snacks including breakfast cobs, pasta pots and toasted muffins.  With menus changing daily, The Place offers an exciting venue to refuel for the day ahead.

Lunchtime menus change weekly, in a three week cycle, every term and there is something for all tastes.  Please check out the link below for the latest menu:
