School Meals

At St Peter’s our meals are provided by Aspens.


The meals at our school are cooked onsite by our friendly team whom you can get to know below.


It’s pretty simple… we feed:
  • children
  • students
  • staff

at schools and colleges.

Our kitchens provide delicious home cooked food each day and cater for individual dietary requirements. You can learn more about our primary school work here.
