School Gateway

Schoolgateway is the academy’s online payment system that lets you make the secure online payments by credit and debit card. 

As a parent / carer you are able to use Schoolgateway to credit your child’s cashless catering account to enable them to pay in school for food in the canteen. You can also pay online for resources including revision books, trips, music lessons and any specialist clubs that have a charge.

Parents also have access to a free app for Apple and Android smartphones which lets you:

  • See all messages and alerts from the school e.g. school closure and attendance queries
  • Send messages to the school for free e.g. for replying to attendance queries
  • Make payments

To have access to the Schoolgateway the school needs to have a record of your mobile phone number AND email address which is then linked to your child’s records in school.
