We can now accept online payments for trips/course costs/dress code/sporting trips etc.

Please note that Cashless Catering is still a different option on the East Lothian PAY FOR IT website.


A short link which takes you directly to the relevant page to make payment is


Go to and click on PAY FOR IT. Select High School Payments from the list. Select your options from the drop down menus and enter all information asked for. Please ensure that you mark in the additional information box exactly which trip/course etc that you are paying for. Please ensure that the School Payment Reference Code is entered in the appropriate box. Please keep payments for different items (eg a trip payment and an Art course payment) separate. However, if you are making two payments for the same item eg Art payments for two pupils, you can do so by including the name of the second pupil and their class in the additional information.

If you choose to pay online using a debit card there will be no charge, however the charge for using a credit card is 1.9%.

Further details are on our website, however please do not hesitate to contact Emma Maguire on 01620 823387 should you require any further information.


Further details and instructions on how to make the system work for you can be downloaded here.

(these instructions are also under School Info on the main website)
