School Lunches

Our catering company is ASPENS; we started working with them in January 2022. They specialise in school food and only work in the education sector. Their kitchens provide home-cooked food each day and cater for individual dietary requirements. Their aim is not only to provide food but also to help educate children and raise awareness about nutrition, food and where it comes from, so that they can make informed and mindful choices. You can read more about them at

Schools are the ideal place for children to start their food adventures so it's the best time to encourage healthy food habits

Special Diets

Special diets are an integral part of our catering provision, whether as a result of an ethical or religious belief or a food intolerance or allergy. To register this as a requirement please complete and return the special diets form to the school as soon as possible. We operate a NUT FREE kitchen and school therefore no special dietary menu is required if your child has a Nut Allergy.
