MyEd App – Download for free today.

We use the MyEd parent app to communicate with parents. This can be downloaded from the Android store and Apple store.

You can find out more at this page

Note: this is only available to parents marked as first contact, based on your phone number.  It will not work if the details we have on our system are not up-to-date. If you need to update your details please contact the school at

Note: some of the functionality, such as student timetable will only appear on the 2nd day after your child has formally started at TPA.

You can also access our payment system, PlusPay, via MyEd.

The MyEd App is available for both Apple iOS and Android devices and can be found on either the Apple App Store or on Google Play by searching for MyEd.

A demonstration of the setting up of the MyEd parent app is shown here:

Once you have installed and opened MyEd, search for your child’s name and follow the simple instructions to identify yourself. We would be delighted if you would download the app, and if you do have any concerns or queries, please don’t hesitate to contact the school.

PlusPay can be accessed two ways; via the MyEd app or by visiting 

To access Iris PlusPay:
