The Mount Stewart Schools

Online Payments



At The Mount Stewart Schools we now only accept payments online for school meals (Junior School), school trips, instrumental music tuition and TMSS teacher-led after school clubs etc.

Paying for school items online is quicker and easier for you, safer for children and more efficient for the school.  This is a secure online payment portal.


The Mount Stewart Schools also use School Gateway for sending short messages to parents/carers. (We also send emails to your usual email address).


The system is called School Gateway – and it’s available for you to use.

If you have recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records.
  2. The system will send a PIN code to your phone.
