Help and About on the Exchange 2007 server shows the following
Exchange Server 2007, Version: 08.01.0436.000
Can I upgrade directly from Exchange 2007 SP1 to SP3, or do I have to install SP2 1st then SP3, also the server is running on Windows Standard FE, 64 Bit, last nights backup was successful, do I need to do anything else to prepare the server for the upgrade to Exchange 2007 SP3, thanks

You can upgrade directly from Sp1 to SP3, there is nothing you need to do, it should just install.

According to MS SP3 can install over any prior Exchange 2007 version.
This is from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607233(EXCHG.80).aspx
The link also has step by step directions.  Don't forget to disable anti-virus.
 
 Installing Exchange 2007 SP3
You can use the following methods to install Exchange 2007 SP3:

On a computer that is running the original release version of Exchange 2007, upgrade the program to Exchange 2007 SP3.

On a computer that is running Exchange 2007 SP1, upgrade the program to Exchange 2007 SP3.

On a computer that is running Exchange 2007 SP2, upgrade the program to Exchange 2007 SP3.

Perform a new installation of Exchange 2007 SP3.
