Uniform and Appearance

Our uniform supplier will be able to advise parents with regards to uniform availability and samples are available in store for sizing. Parents/carers can order with the stockist directly. It is advisable to visit the St Mary’s Road shop as they will be holding the samples. The London Road shop may not hold any samples for newer items.

St Hilda’s expects high standards of its pupils and uniform and appearance are no exception.

Information for parents/carers


At St Hilda’s we use a system called Synergy.  Synergy covers all areas of school life from attendance, student information, parental communication, behaviour management through to its own unique integrated Learning Environment. For more information, please click here.

The Synergy APP is now available and can be downloaded using the links below. Please note, access to the APP and also the modules and features is managed by school.

Please note that you will be able to download the Synergy APP however you will not be able to register until we send you your log in details.

Your log in details will be sent once your child has started at St Hilda’s in September.

Parent Pay

St Hilda’s operates a cashless payment system in school.

On arrival at St Hilda’s your child will be issued with a plastic swipe card which will be used for a number of services in school. The card will be used as an identity card and to print, to access library resources and to purchase food from the school canteen. Students will also be able to use the biometrics system to purchase food. Each student will be issued with an individual card which will include their photograph.

St Hilda’s is completely cashless. This means that all school trips, books and catering in school must be paid for online, via the cashless payment system, ParentPay. You will receive a letter to activate your parent pay account before your child starts school in September. There are many advantages to using this system which are outlined in the ParentPay information sheet overleaf and on its website –

An amount of £2.30 per day is credited automatically to the account of students who are entitled to free school meals.
