We would like to advise that as of the 1 September 2017, we will no longer accept cash or cheque payments within school.


Ways to Pay

ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, trips and activities, uniforms, music lessons and fees. You simply top-up your ParentPay account online by debit or credit card, or in cash through PayPoint stores. Payment by standing order and faster payments will be available soon. Your ParentPay balance can be used immediately to pay for any of your children’s items at any school using ParentPay.


What are the benefits to parents and pupils?
  • ParentPay is easy-to-use and will offer you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like – 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
  • the technology used is of the highest internet security available ensuring that your money will reach school safely – offering you peace of mind
  • payments can be made by credit/debit card or also through PayPoint
  • full payment histories and statements are available to you securely online at anytime
  • your children won’t have to worry about losing money at school

You can pay by cash, card and contactless payments – in a local shop or by phone – they help to keep modern life moving. People use PayPoint to control their household finances and make essential payments.
