The Twelve Star Diner has recently had a complete refurbishment of the kitchen facilities and the Catering Manager and her team have worked hard to develop exciting new menus for our pupils. Healthy eating is the focus of our service and our products give students a nutritionally balanced choice of dishes over the school day.


The Twelve Star Diner opens its doors at 8.00am, for a popular breakfast service. A selection of yogurts, fresh fruit, crumpets, toast, waffles, pancakes, fruit teacakes, bagels, bacon, sausage, eggs and hash browns are on offer daily.  A selection of hot and cold drinks are also available.  Ensuring our students and staff have that all important start to the day.


Breaktime is a very popular service on offer in our Diner with a variety of snack style items available to keep our students going until lunchtime.  An increasing selection of tasty products is now on offer including toasted items similar to the breakfast choices, hot sandwiches, pizzas, sandwiches & other favourite snack items.


Lunchtime brings an even greater choice from our healthy menus; each day there is a choice of main meals with a vegetarian option always available, with a selection of potatoes & vegetables to accompany your meal.

The Twelve Star Diner also serves a choice of pasta, panini and pizza each day. We also serve the really popular 'Love Joes' Chicken each day which are very popular with our pupils. Meal Deals are available at a reasonable price.

Selections of freshly prepared sandwiches are offered in our Twelve Star Diner on a variety of bread bread and wraps. Baked potatoes with a tempting choice of fillings and a soup of the day are also available.

We also offer a fantastic selection of desserts including fresh fruit tubs, yoghurts, cakes, biscuits, ice cream etc. 

The menus rotate over a three week period and are regularly updated to keep the choices exciting, and comply with both the Government Nutritional and Food Based Standards.

Twelve Star Diner operates a cashless system; students operate their own accounts using a Biometric finger scan process which they credit with money using a machine located near the diner. Parents can also load money into the account via an online system (details are provided during the admission induction process). The student can then access these funds to make purchases at any of the services throughout the day. Our Catering Manager and Diner staff are available to assist students with the management of their accounts and products purchased.  Parents can contact school if they would like to check their child’s accounts and purchases in the Diner.

A selection of lunchtime menus are available in the Twelve Star Diner. We regularly change the menus to introduce seasonal food and to offer variety throughout the year.

Cashless School Meal System

Mount Carmel operates a cashless school meal system for the payment of school meals, where no cash is taken at the point of sale. Each pupil using the system is allocated an account. Parents can view details of individual cash balances, cash spent, cash received including what food has been purchased.
When a pupil wishes to pay for a meal they simply place their finger on a scanner at the till point, this will bring up that pupil’s account and will deduct the relevant amount. Free School Meal amounts are automatically added to the system daily.
Money is entered into the system by cash or the online payment system. Read more about this using this link SCOPAY online payments
Parents will need to set up an online payment account as all trips will be through this account. The system will also accept notes along with £2, £1, 50p, 20p and 10p coins.
