Parent Pay

At Hylands School we are a cashless site. Instead we use ParentPay to pay for catering, school trips, locker fees, school fund and additional items.

We use ParentPay because:

  • It reduces the risks associated with students carrying cash
  • Allows parents to pay online with a secure server encryption date at a time convenient to them.
  • It enables parents to monitor food and drink purchased at school.

Details of how to set up your child’s account will be sent to you when your child starts. If you have more than one child at our school or children at another ParentPay school, you can create one single account login for all your children regardless of which school they attend.

Making a payment is easy: Simply select the item to pay and follow the instructions to complete the payment. You can pay for multiple items during a single online session. ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payment to view at a later date should you wish. No card details are stored in any part of the system.
When your child started at Hylands, you would have received a letter that provided you with a username and password for ‘ParentPay’. If you no longer have this letter or require your password to be reset, please email

Parents who do not have access to make payments online can request the school office to order them a ‘PayPoint’ card to enable them to top up lunch money at their local shop. If you feel that you may need to use this service, please contact the school office. The cost of each card is £1.50 plus VAT.
