Harrison Catering Services is immensely proud of our long-term partnership with Cranleigh School – we are a caterer committed to serving healthy, high-quality, delicious meals and providing industry-leading standards daily.

As a family business established in 1994, Harrison is delighted to be serving your children; our vision is to encourage them to explore new tastes and make healthier food choices – we aim to instil a love and understanding of fresh, healthy food that positively influences children at school and throughout life.

The catering team provides nutritious, balanced meals. As an award-winning company with an approach to using quality, sustainably sourced, seasonal fresh food prepared on-site and served by people who love what they do – our teams have access to:

  • BRC-accredited, British-sourced fresh meat and fresh poultry
  • Red Tractor accredited Block Cheddar Cheese
  • UK, Free range eggs
  • Dolphin Friendly Tuna
  • Fairtrade coffee, sugar, and bananas

Engagement and collaboration with stakeholders at Cranleigh, e.g. students, parents and staff, are critical – this ensures we obtain a clear insight into what influences them. So regular surveys, arranged by Cranleigh School, are an easy method to quickly gain valuable insights across the catering service. Comment boxes and a ‘you said, we did’ communication board, located at the site, also help to continually improve our offer, along with feedback through regular face-to-face meetings with the Head boy and Head Girl. We will also introduce regular termly meetings for parents to meet the school catering management team. If you are interested, please contact the Head’s office.

Our Executive Chef, Paul Bain (pictured below), understands the high culinary standards expected at the school, and he shares our passion and culture for fresh, healthy food and creating an environment to help young people thrive and succeed.

Paul has over 33 years of experience across the industry, including 13 years employed in senior management kitchen positions and 14 months at The Gordon Ramsay Academy. Paul’s whole team of exceptional catering professionals want to instil a love and understanding of healthy food that positively influences the pupils at school and throughout life.

With a culture of attracting and getting the best from great people, Harrison inspires creativity; our team at Cranleigh is committed to delivering industry-leading standards the staff, pupils and parents expect every day.

Paul and his Harrison team are passionate about delivering high-quality food service and providing delicious, well-balanced, seasonal menus with pupils at the heart of every service. You can email Paul at catering@cranleigh.org
