All staff and students use the school’s cashless catering system, which is accessed with their personalised identity cards. Cash is not accepted in the school canteens.

For convenience, parents can top up their child’s account using the online payment facility, WisePay. WisePay can also be used to pay for school uniform, resources and school trips.

  (Click on logo to go to Wisepay online payment area)

WisePay is easy to use and gives parents the freedom to make payments at their convenience, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  This means parents no longer have to send cash into school.

WisePay accepts all major credit cards and debits cards. All card payments are secure and adhere to the highest level of compliance under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

All new parents are given a username and password for the WisePay system, along with instructions on how to change their password. For parents with two or more children in the school, instructions on how to merge multiple accounts are provided below.

The Frequently Asked Questions document answers most queries regarding WisePay. However, the school is happy to deal with any further queries or to advise anyone having difficultly using WisePay. Parents can email the school at:

For parents who do not have the facility to top up their child’s catering account online, there are two ‘cash loaders’ in the school for students to pay cash on to their cards. These are situated next to the main A Block and B Block receptions, and step-by-step instructions are provided at each machine.
