Changes to online payments for Microsoft Windows XP or Vista users

Please be advised that from 30th April 2018 any users of Microsoft Windows XP or Vista are no longer able to make payments via the Scopay online payments system which are processed by WorldPay. Unfortunately, users of these operating systems may now have to  upgrade their systems to be able to make online payments.

This change has been enforced by the (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) PCIDSS to ensure that all payment transactions continue to be processed in a secure manner.

Please be aware this outside of the Academy's control and we apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. Unfortunately, we will be unable to assist with making payments online using Windows XP and Vista.

Welcome to the Arnold Hill Academy Online Payments System

At Arnold Hill Academy we use Scopay for parents to make secure online payments for school lunches, trips, revision guides, music tuition and other resources. Scopay is a secure online payments system and has been designed to give you the freedom to make payments, securely by debit or credit card, at your convenience. This means students no longer have to bring cash or cheques into school. With the exception of American Express, Arnold Hill accepts all major debit and credit cards. All card payments are secure and adhere to the highest level of compliance under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

Each user will be sent a letter containing a unique link code along with instructions on how to create an account on the Scopay website. This site is specific to the school and utilises Worldpay to ensure that any transaction is safe and secure.  If you have more than one child at Arnold Hill Academy there is no need to create multiple accounts as a further code will be provided so that all siblings can be linked to the existing account.

If you have already been sent your link code then please go to Scopay and follow the instructions in your letter to create an account or make a payment. If you require a link code for your child please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or telephone the academy on 0115 9554804. More information, including a user guide is available from the Scopay website.

Your card statement will show a payment has been made to Arnold Hill Academy.
