We are implementing changes at the school to minimise cash handling. This will enhance transparency and efficiency by adopting alternative payment methods. Below we have outlined the various ways you can pay however our preferred method of payment is through ParentPay.


ParentPay is an online, secure, payments service which can be accessed from PCs and mobile devices at any convenient time.

You can also find out about school trips or find out the current balance on your child’s catering account on the ParentPay website. 

Payments are notified to the school regularly throughout the day, so making payments is quick as well as easy, and means, for example, that your child’s catering account can be topped up in time for lunch on the same day. 

A ParentPay account is created for each child, and accounts for different children, even if they are in different schools, can be amalgamated easily into one account, eliminating the need to log into multiple accounts to make payments. ParentPay keeps a full audit trail of all payments made via the system, making it easier to identify if payments have, for any reason, gone astray.

ParentPay – account activation details sent out when child is enrolled at school, or on request.

Credit/Debit Card

Credit/debit card payment – this option is only available if the relevant ParentPay account has been activated.

Bank Transfer

Direct credit through your bank (can be done via internet banking or at a bank branch).  The school's bank details are:  

Barclays Bank
Sort Code 20-46-50

When asked to enter the payee name, please use "United Learning Trust" to ensure the details pass the bank's verification processes.

Your child’s name and form/class, together with a description of what the payment is for (e.g. trip, catering, etc) is required, so that we know who/what the payment is for.


Please make cheques payable to "WHGS" and include your child’s name and purpose of payment which should be written on the back of the cheque.


Cash is no longer accepted by the Finance Office, but can still be used to top up catering accounts via the cash revaluer machines. Please use one of the alternative options for payment.
