ParentPay and Payments for Meals, Trips and Uniform

Felixstowe Academy will be using a secure website called ParentPay that allows parents and carers to make online payments using a credit or debit card.  ParentPay will be our preferred method of making payments to Felixstowe Academy, as cash transactions will no longer be taken at till points within the Academy.

Students will be able to pay for their lunch or uniform items within the Academy using their new ID badges. However parents and carers must activate and add credit to their ParentPay account to enable students to purchase food from the restaurant.

Free School Meal credits are automatically added to the student account and the student can use this amount via their new ID card. 

Please contact Felixstowe Academy by email if you have any questions that are not covered by viewing our ParentPay information page using the link below:


Academy Uniform & Identification Cards

At the start of the new term, all new Year 7 students will be presented with a new identification card and lanyard.  All other students must bring their identification card from the previous academic year with them.

The wearing of the new identification card and lanyard is part of the Academy uniform within the new Academy campus.
