Catering/Cashless Payments

The PantryWe are delighted to welcome our new catering service partner The Pantry.

Parents/Carers will use the online payment system sQuid to top up their child's catering purse account. 

At the start of each academic year, NEW parents/carers are emailed a unique registration code and security PIN together with instructions to create their sQuid accounts (please see further details below).

From September 2021, students and staff will be issued with a bespoke pin number, unique to each diner and account, to pay for their food.

During September 2021, The Pantry will also be introducing facial recognition to diners’ accounts. (There will be further information about this circulated shortly).
