Cashless Catering

We do not accept cash at the canteen tills and there is no lending facility, so all payments for your child's lunch or break-time refreshments must be done through our online payment system as above.

Please ensure that your child has sufficient credit. Parents can check their balances via the online payment system, and pupils can check in the canteen.
