We are making it easier for you to make online payments to school.

We have moved to a new online payment service called School Gateway. This means that you will be able to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. You will also be able to view school meal balances and top them up at any time.

We will notify you by text or email when new items such as school trips or tickets for events are available for payment on School Gateway.

Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway will also make it easier for you to pay anytime 24-7 and reduce the amount of money being carried by children on school premises.

All you need to do is…

Activate your School Gateway account (if you have not already done so). It is quick and easy to do. All you need are your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you.

  • Download the app: If you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS it saves the school money when we send you a text message.


  • Visit the website:  www.schoolgateway.com and click on ‘New User’. You will receive a text message with a PIN. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway.

If you are having trouble logging in, it may be because the school does not have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please email c.king@sharplesschool.co.uk or call the school and we will update the details on our system.

We hope that you find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school items.
