Academic Year

School Gateway

Our new online payments facility is going well and we now have 46% of parents signed in to the service.  Have you downloaded the ‘School Gateway’ App yet? If you have a smartphone, please download ‘School Gateway’ from your app store.  The app shows the same information as the website PLUS you can send app messages to the school for free – this will also save the school money when we send text messages.

Alternatively, you can visit the website and click on ‘New User’.  You will receive a text message with a PIN number.  Use this PIN to log in to School Gateway.


We hope to increase our usage this term and hope that you will find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for your school items.


Yours sincerely,


K A Custis
