Catering & Free School Meals


We are always in the mood for good food!

We are Aspens Services, a market-leading contract catering company specialising in school food.

We only work in the education sector so we know what our customers want.  Mixing this knowledge with an understanding of what’s hot in the food world sparks creativity and excitement in our chefs. Our kitchens provide delicious home-cooked food each day and cater for individual dietary requirements.


Streateries is our secondary meal offer where every day has a theme. Featuring global cuisines, customised offers and food on the move, we are bang up to date with the current trends whilst still ensuring that there is a place on the menu for the comfort of our

Familiar school dining hall favourites. Each day the menu includes as standard a street food dish, a handheld version, vegetarian/vegan choices along with a selection of sides.

Deli Kitchen

Our Deli Kitchen brand is for the popular standard Aspens hot and cold offers. This can range from Authentic Italian pizza and pasta, Hacienda Mexicana’s burritos, rice pots and sides and Voulez Poulet’s house rub chicken, dogs and sides through to our range of healthy sandwiches, paninis, wraps, jacket potatoes, salads, fruit and cold dessert pots.


The school menu rotates on a three-week basis and refreshes for Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer seasons.

The school Mid-Morning Break Menu can be viewed by clicking here. Break is served from 10 am.

The school Hot Deli Menu can be viewed by clicking here. Lunchtime begins at 12.20 pm

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 any special diets as a requirement please complete and return the special diets form to the school as soon as possible.

Our Planet

We work closely with our clients and suppliers to be as environmentally friendly as we can. By making lots of small changes, we can make a big difference. We care about the future and continue to focus on responsible sourcing, using seasonal produce, increasing our focus on plant-based recipes, making our menus more sustainable, keeping waste to a minimum and reusing and recycling to reduce the impact we have.
