School Sectors

Primary and Middle Schools

At AiP we firmly believe that we have a responsibility to support our Primary Schools by helping with the education of the children with regards to food, lifestyle and making healthy choices. Our Primary School offer is all about promoting a well-balanced diet whilst encouraging the children to try new things and to have fun with food!

Our aim with Food Smart is to deliver freshly prepared meals that exceed all nutritional standards, served by caring staff in a welcoming, home from home environment. We only use local, fresh core ingredients including meat sourced from British farms, in-season vegetables and free range eggs. Aip uses the industry-recognised Saffron database to create compliant menus.

With Food Smart, good food doesn’t stop at the kitchen either. We inspire pupils to enjoy healthy meals both at school and at home with theme events, food sampling, competitions and hands on cooking, often working alongside the curriculum in-school.

Secondary Schools and Academies

Today’s high street savvy young people are always on the look-out for something new and exciting and therefore our development chefs are constantly refreshing our food concepts for this age group, whilst maintaining our healthy eating approach and offering Food for life Gold mark menus.

The needs of secondary school pupils are ever changing, and this group is particularly brand-savvy and influenced by trends in the bigger food landscape. AiP’s secondary school brand ‘Feed Me’ has been developed to offer a range of solutions reflecting trends in food to go, café culture and street food, as well as more formal sit-down lunches made with quality ingredients. Our Feed Me brand makes students feel they are in an adult eating environment, giving them the flexibility to choose the food options that best meet the requirements of their busy day at school.

Independent Schools

Our personal approach means that we can offer you a bespoke solution to meet, if not exceed, your catering requirements.


Competing with trends and the high street whilst delivering an excellent product at great value for money is how we approach the college market. We work with our college clients to ensure that we maximise available space for retail solutions and offer specialist design solutions.

6th Form

The Forum is AiP’s sixth form offer geared towards older students. We understand that today’s sixth form students are conscious of trends and used to high street café culture and so we have created a different food court type offer and tariff especially for them.

Under the Forum brand we offer fresh bean to cup premium coffee as well as deli grab and go items. Hot main meals are always available along with lighter but nutritious bites such as an omelette bar and sweet and savoury crepes. And to appeal to this market’s interest in world flavours we can offer street food inspired sushi, noodle and burrito bars.

Our Brands


Food Smart is our Primary School brand incorporating food characters to liven up the dining experience whilst underpinning our fresh food approach. Food Smart creates a dining area with bright vibrant colours to help appeal to primary school children.


Feed Me is our secondary school branding incorporating a variety of colourways to enhance the dining space. We look to work with our clients and customers in finalising the colourway giving a real wow factor to the students and staff in the dining space.

6th Form

The Forum is our 6th form brand and gives a clear definition between secondary and 6th form and one that is reflected in the offer as well as visually.
