Parent Pay

We use the online ‘ParentPay’ system to handle all student cash transactions.

Using a secure login, parents can pay for all items including student meals, snacks, trips and music tuition.

ParentPay has lots of benefits in many ways not least of which by reducing administration tasks, creating more time to lend to educational support and the smooth running of the school. We would encourage as many parents as possible to use ParentPay and hope that you will support us in taking this important step towards creating a ‘cashless school’.  Using this system also removes the risks associated with students bringing cash into school.

Please contact the school if you require further information.
