School money: online payments

We are a cashless school. Instead, parents and carers will need to use the online service called ‘School Money’. Parents will receive a unique password to be able to log on to School Money and pay for school meals, trips, music tuition and afterschool clubs.

For more information or to make an online payment to the school please go to:
