Catering & Free School Meals
All food bought in the college is paid for using our cashless catering and online payment system.
We use SCOPAY for our online payments. With SCOPAY you can pay for school dinners, trips and events.
SCOPAY allows you to top up your child’s account anywhere, anytime using a credit or debit card, Google Pay or Apple Pay.
All parents have access to SCOPAY; if you have not yet registered, please contact the Finance Department and an access code will be issued to you.
NO CASH can be accepted at the tills and your child's account must be up-to-date before they wish to buy any food. Payments are best made online using SCOPay; for any monies credited, please note it may take up to 24 hours for monies to show in your account.
Balances left on cashless accounts after students or staff leave the College can be refunded on request if over £5.00 only but this needs to be requested within 4 weeks of leaving. The cost of refunding smaller balances makes this unfeasible. Balances under £5.00 will be donated to the College Development Fund. We suggest that parents and students make every effort to use up any balances left.

Free School Meals
If you are in receipt of Free School Meals your child is entitled to £2.50 (September 2023/24) per lunchtime allowance which will automatically be added to their account. This cannot be carried forward to another day and can only be used at lunch time. You will need to provide your child with a breaktime snack. Parents may also 'top up' the account via their SCOPay account
You can check your child's eligibility for Free School Meals here .
