Parent Apps

HBHS School Gateway

Developed by the same company responsible for our Management Information System, School Gateway boasts seamless integration with the data we maintain in school. Offering a unified Android, iOS, and web platform, it provides parents and guardians access to view attendance, achievements, sanctions, reports, results, timetable, and letters home. You can send us messages for free, complete information capture requests, make bookings for clubs or activities, and handle payments for various purposes, all within a single, user-friendly interface.

A notable advantage of School Gateway is its ability to display students from different schools in the same platform, eliminating the need for parents to log into multiple accounts. Given that some of our feeder schools also use this app, we anticipate significant benefits from this feature.

The set-up process is simple and will take no more than a couple of minutes:

  • Search for “School Gateway” in the Apple App Store/Google Play or on your phone go to (Apple) or (Android)
  • Install the app and if you are asked then say yes to “Allow Push Notifications”
  • When you launch School Gateway for the first time, please select ‘New User’ and enter the email address and mobile telephone number you have registered with the school
  • The system will send a PIN code to your phone; please enter this PIN code and the app will be activated for you.
  • As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, all of the text messages we send you will appear in the app; you’ll receive notifications/alerts as normal.

For those without a smartphone, an online version is accessible through the same site, although we recommend using the app for a more convenient communication experience.

Students can also have access to the School Gateway app, with a dedicated student view providing them with information about their timetable, attendance, achievements, sanctions, and reports.

If you wish for your child to have this access, their mobile phone number will need to be added to our School management system. Please complete the student access form to request this access; students will need to use their school login to access this form:

If you completed the registration and have forgotten / lost your pin, you can reset it here
