Aspens Services is proud to be the new company chosen to provide the catering at Sheldon School. We are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchens. 

With seven different outlets at the school there are choices available to suit everyone!  Breakfast is available in The Refectory and the Sixth Form’s Social Kitchen café. Mid-Morning Break choices and lunch are available in all outlets and we also have a fantastic range of Meal Deals priced at £2.45. Look out for promotions and theme days throughout the year too!

The payment system will not be changing - For payments there is a biometric cashless catering system in place and pupils purchase their refreshments using their pin code or finger scan. Please refer to the Biometric FAQS document and Biometric Permission slip below for further information.

Our preferred method of payment for catering will be online via ParentPay. However, for those unable to make payment by this method, cash payments for catering will also be possible via a ‘Revaluation machine’ which will be sited in the Refectory corridor at school, pupils will also be able to check their balance here. Pupils benefiting from free school meals have their biometric account automatically credited for easy use.

Here's what is available in each of the outlets:
