information on each Application

School Gateway

The school gateway is used for making online payments. If you’re having trouble logging in, it may be because the school does not have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please call the school and we’ll update the details on our system.


This app can be used to see your child's Achievement points, Behaviour points, attendance and send and receive messages from the school.
