ParentPay - Online School Payments

Glasgow City Council introduced an online payment solution called ParentPay into all primary and secondary schools across the city. ParentPay is used to pay for all school trips, tickets, meals etc and enabled us to remove all cash and cheques from schools. 

Details of what ParentPay can offer both you and our school are listed below.

How do I get started?

You will be issued with an activation letter containing your 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 at ParentPay schools.  Please activate your account as soon as possible.
