School & Academy Clients

CCS is a trading division of Cambridgeshire County Council, working for schools and children, rather than profits and shareholders. 

Primary Schools

  • We aim to develop long-term relationships with clients by being open, honest and professional, with a can-do approach.
  • We work with schools to make lunchtime an integral and enjoyable part of the school day. 
  • Our kitchen teams serve traditionally prepared recipes which have been taste tested by students. 
  • Our ‘SMART Choice’ health and wellbeing programme helps ensure consistent messages are promoted throughout the school day. 

Unlike many caterers, we employ our own Dietitian who provides invaluable support to both our menu team and children with medically defined diets.  This special dietary information ensures parents, schools and kitchen teams are entirely confident that a child’s needs are being catered for.

We offer flexible cost effective services, allowing your school to opt into the specific services you require from CCS.


Secondary Schools

In Secondary Schools, we tempt taste buds with a combination of high street  trends and traditional favourites. 

We also work with schools to develop new ideas, whilst reducing queueing and  improving uptake.

This win-win approach benefits students, schools and CCS helping create trusted, long term relationships.

Working in partnership with CCS ensures a professionally managed catering service and a personalised approach that meets the specific needs of your school and students.
