ParentPay - Online Payment Service

ParentPay is a secure website which will allows you to pay for school trips and school life 'extras' such as music lessons (with Visiting Instrumental Musicians), additional costs for curriculum subjects, tickets for school events - but not School Fees - with a credit or debit card.

ParentPay is both easy and convenient to use and offers you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like.

Initially we will be rolling out the provision of ParentPay just to parents of pupils at QEGS and WGHS Senior Schools.

Note: This new online facility is in addition to the usual methods the Foundation uses regarding receipt of payments. Parents are still able to make cash / cheque payments if they wish.

Benefits to Parents and Pupils

  • Service is available 24/7
  • Technology used is of the highest Internet security available ensuring your money will reach your school safely
  • Payments can be made by credit or debit card
  • Full payment histories and statements are available to you securely online at anytime
  • Pupils do not have to worry about bringing (and losing!) cheques/money brought into school to be handed in for trips etc

How it works

Each user has a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password. Making a payment using your credit/debit card is straightforward  and ParentPay holds an electronic record of all payments for you to view at a later date. When you make a payment, an email confirmation  is sent to you, giving you reassurance that the transaction has been successful.

Getting Started with ParentPay

​Account activation usernames and passwords will be provided to Senior School parents. Note: If you have pupils in both QEGS and WGHS Senior Schools you will be able to create one account during the activation process. The same will apply as and when this facility is available for the Junior Schools.

Once you receive your log in details:

  • Visit www.parentpay.com
  • Enter your Activation username and password in the Account Login section of the homepage. Note: These are for one-time use only, you will choose your own username and password for future access during the activation process
  • Provide all the necessary information and choose your new Username and Password for your account
  • Please register your email address so we can send you receipts and reminders
  • Once activation is complete you can go straight to My Payment items, select which items you wish to pay for and follow the simple on-screen instructions to complete your payment
  • Please note that payments must be made by midnight the day before you wish them to be active

Please be assured that ParentPay offers the highest security available and no card details are stored on the system or are accessible by the school or ParentPay.
