Free School Meals

Saint Pius X Catholic High School wants to reassure you that there is no stigma to taking up a Free School Meal. We operate a cashless system which means that it is impossible to differentiate between students on free school meals and those who aren’t. If you think you are entitled and would like to apply for Free School Meals please click the link below or alternatively a paper application can be obtained from the school reception.
