We are always in the mood for good food!
We are pleased to let you know that Aspens provide the meal service at The Hemel Hempstead School. Aspens Services, are a market leading contract catering company and specialise in school food.
They 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.
We don’t just provide food, we play our part to educate children and raise awareness about nutrition, food and where it comes from, so that they can make informed and mindful choices. Feeding our future.
We push the boundaries here with really interesting dishes that grab a lot of attention in the world of food. We understand that tastes are expanding, and students are keen for the chance of new food experiences. We also don’t forget that familiarity and comfort are what so many want, so we have plenty of choices to fit the bill. With important learning to be done, we make sure that we are feeding healthy minds as well bodies.
Streateries is our main secondary meal offer. With food drawing on Asian, African, Caribbean, and more traditional fare, the menu includes street food dishes, handheld versions with vegetarian and vegan choices and sides available.
Our Deli Kitchen builds on the popularity of our standard hot and cold deli offers, to provide more substantial meals at our grab and go counter.
The menu rotates on a three-week basis and refreshes for Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer seasons.
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.
Biometric Cashless Catering
The dining room operates using biometric technology. There are readers at each till which allow students to check the balances on their account. (Cash loaders are used to credit accounts before reaching the tills.)
