School Catering

    Cranbourne's school meals are provided by Hampshire County Council Catering Service (HC3S).  The service provides students with a choice of meals, all at £2.10 each (current tariff as of September 2016) , as well as a range of healthy snacks such as yoghurt, fruit, sandwiches and fruit juice.


    Please read HC3S's mission statement below:


    We work with our customers, constantly challenging ideas, to ensure we provide high quality, flexible solutions for your catering needs.

    HC3S are the catering provider in your school.  As the provider of the catering service to over 486 schools and non-educational units within Hampshire we are experts at getting the balance right between providing the food that the pupils want, whilst still complying with the current government nutritional standards.


    HC3S were awarded the “Cost Sector Education Caterer of the year” in 2011, and this award sits proudly with our “Good Egg” and “Good Chicken” awards from the group “Compassion in world farming”.  In addition, the “Hyperactive Children’s Support Group” have accredited HC3S with their highest award for actively removing additives from our foods.


    Very important for parents: the cost for our main meal choice at lunchtime has remained the same for the last four years.  £2.00 will provide a hot, nutritiously balanced meal.
