Schools Meals

Aspens - Sept 2020

September 2020

ASPENS

Aspens Services Ltd has been chosen to provide the catering at Nonsuch High School for Girls.  They offer varied menus using fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our school canteen.  Information about Aspens can be found on their website by clicking here.


MENUS

Our menus are constantly evolving and are refreshed and advertised within school. 

For the return to school in September 2020, our menus have been temporarily simplified.  This is to enable us to ensure we have the correct processes in place, to ensure speed in our food service (due to shorter break and lunchtimes) and to minimise queue times.  We will review our menus again over the course of the autumn term and hope to bring back more menu choices once we are fully open.

CASHLESS PAYMENT SYSTEM

A cashless payment system is operated reducing the problems of cash in the school, reduce queuing times and encourage healthy eating.  Payment is made online via ParentPay and more information can be found on the ParentPay website.

This credit balance on the ParentPay account is debited each time a student purchases food items from the catering service at breakfast, mid-morning break and lunch.   A maximum daily spend limit of £5.00 is set (please email the catering team via nonsuch@aspens-services.com if you wish to have a different daily limit); however an average daily spend is estimated at £3.00 per day.  Main Meal and Dessert is currently £2.30.
