A Big “Hello” from Cucina (pronouned “Cuchina”", the Italian word for kitchen), your on site caterers at The Hazeley Academy.
The restaurant is open for breakfast from 8.00am with a breaktime “Brunch” at 11.15 a.m., both offering a wide selection of choice at varying prices.
We have employed a top chef who cooks all food from scratch every single day to make sure your children’s food is fresh, nutritious and tastes great. This ensures that school food is now good food too!
We believe that eating well is crucial to improving ability and behaviour, and can help deliver better academic and athletic results. Cucina makes meals fun and helps students to broaden their knowledge and appreciation of good food.
