In an attempt to reduce all cash/cheques coming in to the Academy, we encourage payments for dinners, trips, ties, revision guides etc to be made via our e-payment method – ParentPay.

Payments can be made online via ParentPay secure website, or in cash at local stores where you see the PayPoint logo (PayPoint cards can be ordered by calling us).

Letters with log in details will be posted out today/handed to students.

If you require assistance with this, or need further information. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
