ParentPay

ParentPay

Cheadle Hulme High School is a cashless school and we ask all parents / carers to only use our e-payment method to pay for dinner money, trips, activities and other items such as House T-shirts, revision guides and lockers etc. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay or in cash at local stores where you see the PayPoint logo.

When students join the school, parents / carers will be issued with a secure on-line account with a unique user ID and password that can be changed to something they will more easily remember and, if appropriate, accounts can be merged for two or more children.
