Online Payments through ParentPay
We are now a ‘cashless’ school using an online payment provider, ParentPay, which is one of the most popular providers within schools. We hope that you find it easy to use.
Any balances that were on our previous online payment provider, Scopay, have been transferred over to ParentPay.
You should have been provided with an activation letter to set up on ParentPay. If you do not have one, please contact the school office.
All payments need to be paid through ParentPay, apart from charity donations.
