Our Catering Partner

We are delighted to be working with Alliance in Partnership as our catering partner. Alliance in Partnership (known as AiP) are passionate about ensuring that every child takes full advantage of their learning opportunities, and to do this you need to have a well-balanced and healthy diet.

The food AiP offer is predominantly home-cooked, using fresh and seasonal ingredients, and cooking practices aim to minimise fat and sugar content, as well as the minimising the loss of important nutrients like vitamin C in vegetables.

They aim to provide food that is healthy and nutritious, which will exceed your needs and expectations, and also tastes delicious.

Our Menus
Menus run on a 4-week cycle, and deliver exciting and modern food.  They offer a variety of options from a light snack and a coffee with friends, breakfast to start your day, and of course, a full meal at lunchtime. Please see an example of our menu here: University of Birmingham School Menu (382kb)

At breakfast time, our offer includes yoghurts, muffins, toast, fresh fruit and more.  

At morning break there is a variety of home-made baguettes, sandwiches, wraps, bagels, toast and filled toasties.  There is also a daily Guest Offer which includes hot paninis, home baked products, which can all be complimented with delicious cup of Arabica Bean coffee!

At lunchtime there is a variety of freshly prepared meals, including a daily Guest Special Dish, pasta, jacket potatoes with a variety of fillings, and a wide selection of sandwiches, baguettes and wraps from our New York Deli Range.
