Cashless Payments

The school will operate a cashless payment system. The school finance office will not accept cash as a method of payment unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Parents and carers will be issued with a secure username and password and details of how to access the system. This system will be used for all payments including catering; educational visits and activities.

The school’s electronic payment system is operated by WisePay and all parents/carers will be issued with a username and password and details of how to access the system. Alternatively, the Wisepay app is now ready to download from Itunes/Google Play.

The school code is: 93777475.

The cost of lunch is £2.60 per day plus any additional snacks that students may purchase during break time. 

Families must pay for lunch and snacks in half-termly instalments to reach the school by the start of each new half term.

Your payment schedule for school lunches is as follows:

  • Half Term 1 – £91.00
  • Half Term 2 - £78.80
  • Half Term 3 - £78.00
  • Half Term 4 - £78.00
  • Half Term 5 - £78.00
  • Half Term 6 - £91.00

Please email if you experience any difficulties making payments. We may be able to provide some support, but it will on a case by case basis.

We have worked with Wisepay to give you the option of paying instalments ahead of each deadline. Therefore, you may wish to consider a budgeting plan. For example, paying £13 into your Wisepay account on a weekly basis as long as the full amount is paid by the deadline. If a pupil has been off school, we will reimburse the account on the last day of term.

Free School Meals

The easiest way to ensure that your free school meal application is processed quickly is to contact Greenwich via their website ( or your local borough):

If families have a free school meal application pending they must still pay for lunch in advance. If the free school meal application is agreed, over payment will be reimbursed.

Families are able to check their eligibility using the London Grid for Learning Free School Meals Eligibility Checker. If eligible, please provide the school with the awarded certificate in support of your free school meals application.
