To make it more convenient for parents to pay for school meals, trips, after-school clubs and much more online, we use a secure online service called ParentPay.  We, therefore, no longer accept cash and cheque payments.  This helps make the school a cash-free environment and eliminates the need for students to carry cash throughout the day, thus reducing the risk of bullying. Parents who wish to continue making payments in cash may do so by using the PayPoint network at local convenience stores: –

  • McColls Matchborough Centre
  • Spar Winyates Centre
  • Costers Convenience Costers Lane

To make life even easier, if you have more than one child in our school or children at other ParentPay schools, you can create just one account for all your children.

To register, please email with your name, email address, your child(rens)’s name and tutor group.  If you require a Paypoint card, please also confirm this in the email.
