Online Payments

Highbury Grove operates a cashless catering system.

It’s 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.


Visit the website: and click on ‘New User’. Enter your email address and your mobile number. You’ll receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway. Once logged in please change the PIN to a memorable number. There is an icon to upload credit to your child’s account. Select the amount you want to transfer and then select proceed and follow the instructions. Please log on regularly to check your child’s balance as students will be unable to purchase food if there are insufficient funds.

If you’re having trouble logging in, it may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please email 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.

Kind regards,
