From our origins as a small, caring farm based business involved in the supply of good food and support to schools in the provision of a high quality school meals service, Ashlyns is developing and emerging as a dynamic, proactive company with the experience and commitment to continue to build on a reputation for efficiency, professionalism and integrity whilst maintaining that friendly ‘hands on’ approach for which we are so well known.

Grounded in the belief that we work in complete partnership with the school and with the ethos that together with can make a real impact and a considerable difference in the whole school meal experience, we strive to maintain throughout an adherence to the moral and ethical principles on which Ashlyns is founded, and our team of professional staff, in touch with educational issues facing schools today, work to forge effective relationships with school staff to attain our mutual goals

A commitment to using locally sourced, organic where possible, and environmentally sound raw ingredients for our meals cooked entirely on school premises is at the heart of our vision, and our practice.

Our children deserve great school dinners they enjoy eating and that are healthy as well. We work with schools in innovative ways to ensure that children are not only fed well but are food wise too. Food tasting sessions with parents, assemblies, sessions in class are all part of our whole school approach.

As in any arrangement there does need to be a level of flexibility but the basic concept is that Ashlyns manages the catering from start to finish. After the initial consultation and agreement, budgets will be set for the catering service. We then endeavour to meet or exceed said budget collaboratively.

Ultimately the school will pay all of the associated costs of running the service which includes our management fee. If there is a surplus at the end of the year then we would hope that the school will re-invest that surplus into the kitchen or dining hall.

If you are interested and would like to discuss your schools needs further or you would like us to come and visit you then please call us on 01277 890411 or email us at and we will get in touch as soon as we can.
