Our chosen caterer's (Pabulum) vision is to be at the forefront of improving the next generation’s health and well-being, by shaping the food culture in education that inspires a passion and love of fresh food – without compromise.

Please see an introduction from our caterers, Pabulum:


We feel strongly about educating the younger generation on healthy eating by providing fresh and wholesome food, as it's through a balanced diet and healthy food choices that students can maintain higher classroom concentration levels. 94% of our food is freshly prepared in West Drayton Academy kitchen and 75% of the food is British and locally sourced. 


At West Drayton Academy we have a dedicated Pabulum team led by an experienced Chef Manager.


Available at lunchtime and made fresh in our kitchen we offer:

  • A choice of meat, fish or vegan main meal
  • Unlimited allergen free salad bar
  • Jacket potato with a variety of fillings
  • Two choices of unlimited freshly baked wholemeal bread
  • Homemade dessert
  • Fresh fruit platter
  • Homemade yoghurt


Our Pabulum dining experience gives every child time to enjoy our fresh food offer, whilst encouraging children to try delicious new dishes and rewarding them with a sticker or certificate.

Your current menu, along with allergens, can be found on Pabulum’s website.


Pabulum goes beyond the fresh food dining experience; our initiatives engage and inspire to help develop a deeper appreciation of food through parents’ evenings, playground taster sessions, food assemblies and cookery demonstrations.
