Agora Online Payment System


We are pleased to let you know that Anston Park Junior School is moving to an online payments system after Christmas although you can begin paying online as soon as you have registered. This system will enable you to pay for school meals and other school activities online.  We hope that you will find paying in this way to be much more convenient and from our perspective it will save us time as well as reduce the chances of money being lost or left in book bags.


We will be using a system known as SIMS Agora which is very easy-to-use and will offer you the flexibility to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that payments are secure and use the highest level of card security and that funds will reach the school safely.
