Make online payments to school via instant bank transfer, credit or debit card

Use School Gateway to make online payments with a debit or credit card any time 24-7, via smartphone app or website. Plus, you can give online consent where required, for your child to take part in school trips and other activities.

To make things easy, we notify parents of new items for payment by text.

Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway also makes paying for school items easier and more flexible for parents and reduces the amount of cash being carried by children on school premises.

We would encourage you to use it as part of our move towards becoming a cashless school.

If you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS it saves the school money when we send you a text message. We are aiming to get 50% of parents using the app – please help us achieve this.
