Healthy Eating

MEA is surrounded by a number of shops and the Civic Centre and we are concerned that students are spending their lunch money on junk food on their way to school rather than getting a proper meal. At MEA we want our students to grow into successful young people and it is therefore vital that we support them to be fit and healthy. 

If your child has a dietry requirement and would like a school meal, please contact the main reception on 0161 499 2726
