Aspens is the company chosen by the Academy to provide our meal service. They specialise in providing catering to schools and colleges across the country.
The food children eat at school plays an important role in their wellbeing, and eating a well balanced diet will not only maintain and improve their health, but will also set them on the right track for later life. All of their dishes are prepared daily using quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.
Lots of Choice
Aspens has a fantastic range to choose from and they make sure that they serve the variety of food that children like and want to eat. It’s not all about eating vegetables and fruit - although they do make sure the balance is right!
All of their dishes are prepared everyday using quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients that are responsibly sourced. As well as ensuring the food on the plate is healthy, they understand the importance of eating the right foods and help our students with their food and nutrition journey.
Special Diets and Food Allergens
Don’t think our great food can’t be enjoyed if you have a special diet. Aspens can provide food an intolerance, an allergy, or require an alternative choice due to religious beliefs.
Legislation requires caterers to provide allergen information on food sold that is served ‘unpackaged’. Aspens already cater for lots of children with allergies and they regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes.
