School Gateway

Make Online Payments to School via Credit or Debit Card

School Gateway can be used to make online payments with a debit or credit card at any time using a smart phone app or website. You can also view school meal balances and top them up and you can also give online consent, where required, for your child to take part in school trips and other activities.

To make things easy, we notify parents of new items for payment by text or email.

Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway also makes paying for school items easier and more flexible for parents and reduces the amount of cash being carried by students on school premises. We would encourage you to use it as part of our move towards becoming a cashless school.

Not used School Gateway before?

Activating your School Gateway account is quick and easy to do. All you need are your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you.

Download the app:

If you have a smart phone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS it saves the school money when we send you a text message.

Visit the website:

 Go to and click on ‘New User’. You’ll receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log in to School Gateway.

Trouble logging in? It may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school and we’ll update the details on our system.

We hope that you will find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school items.

Important Information for parents of new students joining Year 7 in September 2018

Access to School Gateway

School Gateway accounts can be created as soon as we are able to enter all the student information from the data sheets which were collected on Thursday 5th July at the new parents evening.  Please bear with us during this time as there is a lot of work to be done and it will take some time.  Once all the input is complete you will receive an email to confirm this and will then be able to create a Gateway account for your daughter

  • Dinner Money
  • Payment for dinner money will be able to be made over the summer on the Gateway
  • Reports & Achievements
  • Receive school reports straight to your phone so you stay up to date with your child’s progress.
  • Managing Accounts

School Gateway is set up so that parents with students at more than one school (and where each school is using the Gateway) can see payment items for each student and school on one account.  This will also be visible once we have completed our work to create student records.
