School Gateway

At Hollyfast we are a 'cashless' school and have implemented an online payment system for parents to make payments for School Meals, Educational Visits, workshops and school based activities.  This system also allows us to contact you by email and text message very quickly and easily. To access the system all you need is an email account and a mobile phone!


Make online payments to school via credit or debit card

Use School Gateway to make online payments with a debit or credit card any time 24-7, via smartphone app or website. You can also view school meal balances and top them up. Plus you can give online consent, where required, for your child to take part in school trips and other activities.

To make things easy, we notify parents of new items for payment by text or email.

Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway also makes paying for school items easier and more flexible for parents and reduces the amount of cash being carried by children on school premises. We would encourage you to use it as part of our move towards becoming a cashless school.

Activating your School Gateway account is quick and easy to do. All you need are your email address

and mobile number that school holds on record for you.


Download the app:

If you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS it saves the school money when we send you a text message.


To create an account :


Visit the website: 

Click on ‘New User’ tab. Enter your email address and mobile telephone number. Click on the Send PIN tab.  You’ll receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log in to School Gateway.

Trouble logging in? It may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school and we’ll update the details on our system.

We hope that you will find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school items.
