Payments

We have used our online payment system, Tucasi (ScoPay) since 2 November 2009.

As a school we no longer accept cash as a method of payment so if you do not have an account for your daughter please request one by emailing info@loretogrammar.co.uk ensuring you include your daughter's name or by completing the request form found on the cashless school reminder letter sent on 30th April 2021.

A copy of the reminder letter, with the link to the request form, can be found here.

If you are new to the school you should have received a letter giving you details of how to register, however if you have not received one please follow the above instructions to request one.

Please also take time to read the Quick Reference Guide below and access the system via the link above or by clicking here

All trips and purchases will be made available for payment on line.

Online Payment Announcement from Tucasi

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have been advised by our online payments system provider, Tucasi, that from 30 April 2018 any users of Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Vista will no longer be able to make payments via the Tucasi Online Payments System which are processed by WorldPay. Unfortunately, users of these operating systems may have to upgrade their systems to be able to make online payments from the 30th of April 2018.

Why is this happening?

This change is being enforced by the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). From the 30th June 2018 all websites that accept card payments will no longer allow users of Windows XP and Windows Vista to use their websites. WorldPay are implementing this change on 30th April 2018.

What is the impact?

While you will be able to access Tucasi SCO, view the content and perform tasks in the normal way if you attempt to pay online you will receive an error message. Please be aware this is outside the school's control and we apologise for inconvenience that this may cause, however we will be unable to assist with making payments online using Windows XP & Vista following the 30th April 2018.

Please note, cheques continue to be accepted as an alternative payment method, but cash is not accepted. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the Finance Team.

Kind regards,

The Finance Team

Summer School 2021

Loreto was delighted to provide an optional Summer School funded by the Department for Education to support pupils in making up for education missed during the Covid-19 pandemic. This was a welcome opportunity to offer all new year 7 students an insight into the Loreto Community and also additional support for some of our Year 10 students to recover lost curriculum and prepare for year 11. Year 7 Summer School A choice of 2 different weeks were offered to all incoming Year 6 students (our new Year 7) and this flexibility, together with the overwhelming support from parents and carers, ensured a take up of more than 87% of the year group. With the help of staff and sixth form students the aim of the weeks was to support the transition from primary school to secondary school. We gave the new students an opportunity to experience the school environment and ethos without the daunting aspect of many other students. The students were split into groups, to facilitate greater social interaction and allow new friendships to be formed.  In a very short space of time, we saw their confidence grow along with their awareness of the Loreto community.   The students were fortunate to be able to experience many different aspects of a secondary school curriculum. Over the course of the Summer School two weeks, pupils were able to engage in a mixture of academic and enrichment activities in Science, Mathematics, English, History, Geography, Music workshops, Creative Arts, Languages and even an indoor planetarium. The students also grew their talents and explored the arts and this will lead to their Arts Award qualification during 2021/22. An enlightening experience for the whole Loreto community – both staff and pupils alike.    The students also had the invaluable opportunity to meet new peers and get to know each other in their new setting, particularly during their free time at break and lunch. The students also had tours of the school to prepare them ahead of the start of the academic year, guided by a sixth former perspective.   Feedback from students and parents\carers   “I just wanted to drop you a note to say Thank You for hosting a wonderful summer school last week. My daughter had an awesome week meeting new friends, exploring the school and of course learning lots!  It really was a fabulous week and now she is excited and ready for September.  Please pass on our thanks to the teachers, sixth-formers and all the staff.”  “I'd also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the staff involved in putting on this week. It has been great for the girls to get the chance to feel a bit more comfortable in their new surroundings and start making new friends. After a long and testing academic year it really is very generous of so many people to volunteer their time. “  Year 10 Summer School The Year 10 summer school in English offered provision for students to benefit from additional support in both English Language and English Literature. This included some revision of key skills including language analysis and reading strategies and introductory work on a set text in English Literature. It enabled some diagnosis of student's needs in order to inform an ongoing programme of support throughout year 11.
