Finding the right change or writing a cheque can be tiresome and time consuming. At St. Sebastian's we are using Schoolcomms to offer an online payment method which puts you in control. You can access it at any time and track how much you have paid. You can make payments directly to us using your debit or credit card however the school would prefer you to pay by instant bank transfer as it is more cost effective.
You will need to register for a school gateway account from www.schoolgateway.com (or follow the link on our home page). Then enter your email address and mobile number we have on record for you. Select the send pin button and you will receive your pin via your mobile phone. This pin then allows you to log into the school gateway and view and make payments. You can also download a free app via the App Store or Google Play. Simply search for 'School Gateway'.
We can set up payment requests and you will be notified by text or email that there is a request available. Simply log in, select the request you wish to fulfill and follow the wizard through to pay.
You can see a record of the payments you have made and receipts are sent to your registered email address for all transactions made. This system removes the need to send money into school, removing the chance of money going astray and making it convenient for you to pay when it suits you, from anywhere at any time of day or night.
Your card details are not visible or stored in the Schoolcomms or school system. All card information is processed by Barclaycard.
