Payments and Assistance
sQuid Biometric Cashless System
The College has teamed up with sQuid to deliver a biometric, fingerprint based, cashless payment system. Students can use the system to pay for things at the College food outlets and for other things at College as well. If students/parents do not wish to use fingerprint recognition, a PIN system will be available. Parents can be safe in the knowledge that money is spent at school and students won’t have to worry about carrying cash. New Parents/Carers will be informed about the system with an explanation as to how it works.
Payments to College:
Payments must only be made through their child's sQuid card.
Non Statutory Assistance:
Help with expenses
If you can’t afford to pay for a trip and you receive Income Support or Family Credit, the College may be able to help. You should contact the appropriate Senior Teacher of the Key Stage in which your child is present. Letters regarding trips/events will make it clear that support is available and how to claim it. If Parents/Carers have evidence that they are in receipt of certain benefits they will be exempt from paying the cost of board/lodging.
