Catering Service at Thomas Adams School
Great tasting food that your children will love.
Aspens is the company chosen by the school to provide the meal service to our students. Aspens 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. We understand this and that’s why we are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.
At Aspens – we take our responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously. All of our 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, we want our customers to understand the importance of eating the right foods and help them with their food and nutrition journey. Don’t think that your child can’t enjoy our great food if they have a special diet – they are an important part of our catering service. We can provide food if they have 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 we regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes. It is still important that our customers talk to us so we can work together and continue to provide meals that are safe for them to eat.
Natasha’s Law (from 1st October 2021)
From the 1st October 2021 there is a new law coming into effect which requires us to put all ingredients & allergens on everything we sell that is packaged.
Please see the customer notice below informing our parents that we are continuing with our robust allergen policy here at Thomas Adams. If you have any questions, please contact us.
We are always in the mood for good food!

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.
World Kitchen 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.
