Schoolgateway - trips and events online payments

All trips, clubs and activities at our school are paid for online using the Schoolgateway smartphone app or website. This system makes it easier for parents and carers to pay at any time 24/7 and means we are ‘cash free’.   


How to activate your account


Activating your Schoolgateway account is quick and easy to do. All you need are the email address and mobile phone number that the school holds on record for you.  Either:


  • Download the app: If you have a smartphone, please download Schoolgateway from your app store (Android or iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS it saves the school money when we send you a text message, or



  • You will receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into Schoolgateway.


If you are having trouble logging in, it may be because the school does not have your current email address and mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school office to update your details on our system. Further information is available at Please do contact the office if you need further support e.g. if you do not have access to a computer or need to pay using an alternative method.


We hope you will find Schoolgateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school trips and events.


Making payments and booking clubs


We will notify you by email or letter when new items such as school trips or events are available for payment on Schoolgateway. You will then be able to pay and give consent online for your child to take part in activities. Payments can be made using a credit or debit card.


Schoolgateway is also the system we use for bookings and payment for places at our Early Birds breakfast club. Once you have a Schoolgateway account, choose your child’s account and then the Early Birds Club. You can then tick the dates for the sessions you wish to book.


School lunches


Please note that Schoolgateway is NOT used to pay for school lunches. Independent Catering use the sQuid system for these payments. Further information about sQuid can be found at
