Payments, Finance and Lettings


Any payments made by students all go directly to our finance office where they are securely recorded and receipted.  This is located near reception so if any parents need to pay directly in person its quite easy to do.  We also have an on-line payment facility.  The on-line payment also includes an option to credit your child's cashless catering account. (Students are now using their thumb prints or 4 digit codes to debit their account when 'paying' for food in the canteen.) You will have the option to pay by credit or debit card, but you will still be able to pay by cheque or cash directly in to the school finance office.  If you would prefer to pay on-line please contact our finance office to arrange a log-in and password.

There are a number of benefits including:

  • A simple to use web interface
  • Payments are made through the Royal Bank of Scotland, and are therefore secure and reliable
  • Parents can view their payment history online
  • A reduced risk of pupils losing cash

Once you have received your log in details please revisit this page and access the on-line payment site by clicking here
