How do I get started?
You will have received an activation letter containing your personal activation details to enable you to set up your ParentPay account. If you have more than one child at a ParentPay school/s you can add them to a single account, providing one login for all children. Please contact the school if you require a copy of your activation letter.
We encourage on-line transactions, however if you prefer to pay cash for trips, you can easily do so at one of the many PayPoint stores local to you. You will receive a barcode on the relevant trip letter which you will need to take with you when you make your payment.
