Christleton High School is pleased to offer you the facility to make Online Payments to school via Parentpay. This facility will make it easier for you to order and pay for credit for your child’s Cashless Catering account, trips, events and equipment. There are a number of benefits including:

  • A simple to use website
  • Payments are made through Visa Checkout and are secure and reliable
  • Parents can view their payment history online
  • A reduced risk of students losing cash

There is a detailed internet payment instruction manual available for download at the bottom of the page which we would recommend reading, but if you already order goods online you will recognise the procedures (select goods - add to basket - checkout). For items to be collected, these will be available for collection the next school day at break or lunchtime from the Finance Office (subject to item being in stock).

To create a new account, please click on the link below. You will need to have your child’s Temporary user name and password that has been emailed to the parent(s)/guardian(s) of existing students and will be given to new starters as part of their induction.
