St Michael’s accepts payments online for our cashless catering system. This allows students to pay for their dinner electronically without the need to use cash. Using a secure website called ParentPay you are able to pay online using your credit or debit card. ParentPay is now our preferred method of making payments to the College.
We feel that everyone benefits from this online payment facility. ParentPay is easy-to-use and offers you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24/7 – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available and that funds will reach the College safely.
Parents will have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; making a payment using your credit or 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 e-mail confirmation is sent to you, giving you reassurance that the transaction has been successful.
In addition, ParentPay offers you the ability to set automated email/SMS reminders ensuring you never miss a payment and helping you keep your child’s school meal account in credit at all times.
