Communications and Online Payments
'School Gateway' is the system provider for our messaging and online payments.
Parents and carers will receive messages safely, via short texts, emails or, by App message via Apple or Android mobile phone. The college will need to know about any changes to telephone numbers or email addresses.
Parents and carers can use this system to pay for school trips, music lessons etc and to top up their child’s cashless catering account.
The college will use the email addresses and mobile numbers that we hold – if these may not be correct, please contact Student Services at the college.
