A private girls' school in west London has been criticised for holding an "Austerity Day" where pupils ate potatoes and fruit for lunch.
St Paul's Girls' School, which has fees of £7,978 per term, said serving pupils "simple" food helps them learn about "less fortunate" people.
Henna Shah, who attended the school on a bursary, said the event made her "uncomfortable".
Campaigners said it showed a "complete lack of understanding" of poverty.
The school, where a typical menu for students includes herb-crusted salmon and duck leg confit, posted about the event on Twitter on Wednesday.
Ms Shah took a screenshot of the post before it was deleted.
It said said: "Today was the final Austerity Day of the year. Students and staff had baked potatoes with beans and coleslaw for lunch, with fruit for dessert. The money saved will be donated to the school's charities."
a tad tad out of touch I would say.
