Cashless Catering

Cwmbran High School operates a cashless system within our canteen, so students purchase food or drink through their fingerprint.

The cashless system is linked to Civica Payment  which enables parents to add money to their child's account. Once you have provided us with an email address, we will send you a code for you to set up your child's account.   You can access your child's account by clicking here.

If a student is eligible for Free school meals, their account will be credited with the cost of a meal of the day (currently £2.60) which they will be able to access.
