How do I get started?

We have sent you an activation letter to enable you to setup your ParentPay account.

The activation letter contains a personal activation username and password to enable you to login to ParentPay. During the activation process you are guided through changing your username and password to something more memorable; you can also merge your accounts if you have more than one child at Ellenborough Academy or children who attend different schools (as long as the school subscribes to ParentPay).​
