ParentPay is our online payment system which can be used to pay for meals, school trips and all other items.

We request parents use ParentPay, our online payment system, to pay for meals, school trips and all other items.    

We no longer accept cash or cheques for school trips and other items at the Finance Office.  All purchases will need to be through ParentPay, so it is vital that you activate your ParentPay account as soon as possible.

Charitable events such as non-school uniform days will still be through cash payments.

  • Once activation is complete you can go to straight to Items for payment, select which item(s) you want to add to your basket and proceed to complete your payment

If you have any questions or require a replacement activation code, please contact the school Finance Office or visit ParentPay.

Payment for school trips

All letters notifying students/parents about school trips are issued electronically. These will be sent to the relevant parent/guardian email address/es. If we don’t have your up to date email address, please contact Reception stating your child/children’s names so that we can update our records accordingly.  You should state which parent is to be marked as the ‘prime’ contact, as this will be the parent to receive emails.

Payment for all school trips will now only be paid through ParentPay.  There will only be one payment option for paying via online payments by card via the ParentPay website –  Places on trips will be secured through payment or a deposit according to the trip.   Larger trips will have an instalment option set up so that parents can pay over a period of time. Details of these will be included in the individual trip letters.
