Fee Accounts And Payment Of Fees

The Foundation is moving to a new financial system this summer.

Parents will be able to access their fee account via My School Portal. Information for the Michaelmas 2021 term will be available from the New Billing Portal. Historic information will be available via the Old Billing Portal which will remain in place until all information has been transferred across to the new finance system.

You will still be able to pay your bills online, more information on this will be coming to you soon.

Cyber-crime – please be extra vigilant

Parents are asked to be vigilant when reading emails relating to the payment of school fees and any other items to the Foundation. You can protect yourselves by only making payments to us in line with our normal, published methods. Any email offering a large discount on fees for the coming academic year if paid immediately is fraudulent.

There has been no change to the bank details of Princethorpe College, Crackley Hall or Crescent Schools and there is no intention to make any changes in the foreseeable future. Any electronic notification that appears to be from any of the Foundation schools changing these details may be fraudulent. Our bank details are available on the Parent Bills, the Online Payment Portal and in the Information Booklet for each school, and only those details should be used.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or my colleagues in the Bursary if you are have any doubts about the correct details or indeed if anything appears suspicious.
