Parent Pay


We run a cashless catering system at Highfields and ParentPay is the online payment system that lets you make secure online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

ParentPay is Highfields' preferred method of payment for catering accounts. In the near future, this will be extended to school trips, performances and donations.
