Online payments

Our school has a history of providing parents with an online facility to pay for school related items such as educational visits and dinner money through Parent Pay. In an effort to update procedures and offer a more user friendly, flexible method, we will soon be adopting SIMS Agora as our preferred online system.

Online payments will be more convenient and provide customers with a detailed record of their transactions while also reducing the chances of money being lost or stolen. It allows payments to be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, safe in the knowledge that Agora is secure and employs the highest level of card security.
