Communicating with Parents and Students

Communicating with parents and students is an important part of what we do.  Here is information on the services we use.

SIMS In Touch

We use SIMS In Touch to communicate with parents . In Touch sends emails direct to your inbox and SMS text messages direct to your mobile phone.

This service, which is free, is a discreet, convenient, secure and reliable method of communication which enables the school to send directly to you, information such as newsletters, reminders, notification of school club cancellations, school closure information during severe weather etc.

A SIMS Parent app is also available, making it easy for you to access messages and other important school information. An invitation to register for the app was sent during the Advent Term. If you haven’t accepted the invitation yet can we please encourage you to do so as soon as possible as the link expires after 90 days.  If you can’t find the invitation, or your link has expired, please contact the school and ask to speak to our Faculty Admin Office so that we can issue you with a new one.

It is very important that your contact details are up to date so we are asking you to keep the school informed if you change either your mobile number or email address so that you don't miss any messages.


WisePay is the online service we use for parents to pay for food, trips and other school activities and services.  Please download the new WisePay App - this will make your life much easier as it can store your card details, speed up checkout and give a quick 'top up' option for your child's account.  Once logged in to the app you won't need to log in again - making managing your child's account much quicker and easier.  The App can be downloaded from your WisePay account which you can access here.  Parents will be sent a message giving the unique organisation code that is required to activate the App.  If you haven't received your code please call the school office.  For advice and guidance about your Wisepay account please click here. If you have a query about your WisePay account please email our Finance Department at
