ParentPay is an electronic payment system which allows you to pay for items and school visits using debit and credit cards or cash. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay.

Please note that we no longer accept cheque payments and so ParentPay will be the only method by which payment can be made for these items.

Already have a ParentPay Account?

It is a very simple process to set up a ParentPay account and if you already have a ParentPay account with another school, you can simply login to that account and add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page.  You will need the activation username and password provided by this school in order to do this.

New to ParentPay?

All our parents have access to an individual secure online account, activated using a unique activation username and password provided by the school.  You are encouraged to change these when you first log in and you will be required to keep your username and login secure for future logins.

More than one child?

If you have two or more children at a ParentPay school, you only need to activate one account to create your ‘main account’ and then add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page.

Activate your account

Please visit www.parentpay.com and activate your account via the Account login area on the home page of the site.  You will need your letter from the school with your username and password.

Record of Payments

ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date.  Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away.

Payment via PayPoint

Parents who do not have internet access or prefer to pay by cash, should contact the school finance office on 0191 3835951 to request the option of paying via PayPoint.  We will then send you the QR code you will need in order to pay for specific goods/trips.


Please do not hesitate to contact the school Finance Office if you need any further assistance.
