ParentPay

We are now accepting payments online via ParentPay to allow you to top-up your child’s swipe card and pay for Academy activities such as educational visits and events. Using the secure ParentPay website you can pay online using your credit or debit card.

We hope everyone will benefit from our easy to use payment facility, giving you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and you can be safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest Internet security available and that funds will reach the Academy safely.

You will have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password. Making a payment using your credit or debit card is straightforward and ParentPay holds an electronic record of all payments for you to view at a later date. When you make a payment, an email confirmation is sent to you, giving you reassurance that the transaction has been successful. In addition, ParentPay offers you the ability to set automated email and/or text message reminders ensuring you never miss a payment and helping you keep your child’s swipe card in credit at all times.

Please Note: New student Parent/Carers will not be able to use the service at the start of the new academic year. Login details are normally sent out at the end of September/beginning of October.
