School Gateway App

School Gateway is our new ‘one stop shop’ system where parents can manage all of your communication, payments, consent for trips and access real time information like attendance and reports, acheivements and behaviour regarding your child.

If this sounds too good to be true then please see this video:

Parents can now sign-up and download the school app and also access an account on a computer or smartphone.  We were very excited about this development and so far it has been working extremely well. We hope that you are impressed too.

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

Download the app:  Please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone).


The app shows the same information, consents and payments areas as the website version PLUS you can message the school for FREE – this will also save the school money when we send you a text or app message.

To get started…   you just need to obtain a PIN code, (also use this link for access when using your computer or other smartphone and using Internet Explorer or Safari), you must please visit the website: and click on ‘New User’. You’ll receive a text message with your PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway. You can start by clicking the ‘login’ link below…

If you are having trouble logging in it may be because school doesn’t have either your current email or your mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school at or by phone, (ask for the Data Office), and we’ll update the details on our system. We hope that you will find School Gateway a valuable way to keep up to date. Many features will be added and some tweaked as we develop our use of the product. You might like to set up Instant Bank Transfer for a quick and secure way to make payments, (see below). Also look out for our Parents Evening Appointments and the Gym, Sports Hall, Cycle Track, Computer Room and Conferencing Facilities booking systems to come soon.

One last thing is to talk about using Instant Bank Transfer for your payments.  The full document and help is below, but basically:

Instant Bank Transfer is the easiest and most secure way to pay on School Gateway:

  • It’s easier to use Instant Bank Transfer – after you have set it up you don’t need to enter your card details or address each time you want to pay for something.
  • Instant Bank Transfer works a bit like a normal Direct Debit, when you pay for things on School Gateway the money will come out of your bank account and it is safe because it is backed by the Direct Debit Guarantee. But unlike a normal Direct Debit money will never come out of your account without you authorising every individual transaction on School Gateway.
  • It saves us from transaction charges; money which can be much better spent elsewhere.
