Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


Harris City Academy Crystal Palace offers parents/carers and staff the ability to use the internet to make payments to the Academy.

Using a highly secure website, www.parentpay.com, with a unique user ID and password, parents/carers and staff are able to pay for Academy meals (cashless system), trips, music lessons, revision books, and lots more using your credit and debit cards. This is a free service to parents/carers and staff and there are no additional charges for paying on the internet.

Parents receive a letter containing their user ID and password as soon as a child is fully registered as a student at the Academy so that they are able to start using ParentPay immediately.

ParentPay benefits our students and the Academy in many ways not least by removing the risks associated with students carrying cash to school and reducing administration which creates more time to devote to educational support and the smooth running of the Academy.

Parents/Carers find ParentPay a more secure, convenient and reliable option for both them and their child. Available 24 hours a day 7 days a week, it provides the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like. The Academy does not accept payment by cash or cheque but instead enables all payents to be processed through ParentPay.

For further information about using ParentPay to pay securely online for trips, music lessons, lunches and other activities please contact the Academy Finance Office.
