School Money

Payments Made Easy

School Money enables you to be able to pay for school trips, swimming, breakfast club and uniform online using a credit/debit card. When there is trip for your child’s class that we need payment for or if they are due to go swimming you will receive a text message advising that there is a payment due and giving you a password. Go to and log on using your mobile phone number, email address and the password. Once logged on it will give you the details of the payments that are required. The password that you receive is unique to your child and should be used for all payments that you make online, it will not change for the whole time that your child is at St James the Great Academy.

If you wish to purchase uniform you can also do so by logging on to and going to the school shop section. If you do not already have a password, please let the school office know and they will send it to you by text message. A School Money parent user guide is available from the school office on request.

If you not have access to a computer or prefer to pay directly to the school office for the above items, you can still do so. For the above items only (it does not include payment for school meals) the school office is now able to take credit/debit card details as well as cash.
