Please note that not all services will be available in all schools. Please check with your catering team.

  • Breakfast

    We usually open thirty minutes before the start of school and offer a selection of hot and cold items including our popular 'Breakfast Baps', pastries, fresh fruit and yoghurt as well as tea, hot chocolate, milk and fruit juice.

  • Morning Break

    We offer a wide selection of hot, handheld snack items, such as homemade pasta pots, pizza, paninis, hot wraps, fresh fruit, homemade cakes and biscuits, fresh fruit and chilled drinks.

  • Lunch Break

    At lunch time it's all the above plus a selection of freshly cooked main meals including traditional roasts, fish and chips on a Friday and daily vegetarian options - all of which can be eaten with fresh vegetables or a side salad.  
    Try our 'Chef's Special' - it takes the hassle out of choosing a balanced meal, encouraging students to purchase a complete meal, for only £2

  • After School Club

    For those students who are attending school clubs or just want a snack on the way home, many schools offer a range of cold deli items and chilled drinks.

  • Vending

    Where vending is required for after school or community use, we source the latest machines with improved delivery systems that vend smoothly and quickly.  We supply a range of food and drink machines, offering the flexibility to suit the location.

  • Work Experience and Training

    We have wetted the appetite of many young students through work experience placements in our kitchens, both in schools and non-education units.

If you have any questions, please talk to your HC3S catering team or contact Linda Kennedy, our Head of Secondary and Commercial Services, on 023 8062 7724.
