We hope that you will find paying in this way is much more convenient and from our perspective it will save us time as well as reduce the chances of money being lost or stolen.

We will be using a system known as ‘SIMS Agora’ which is very easy-to-use and will offer you the flexibility to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that payments are secure and use the highest level of card security and that funds will reach the school safely.
