Cashless Catering

Cashless Catering - ParentPay - our new online payment service

We are pleased to announce that, on 9th March, like other schools within Powys, Llanfyllin High School will be implementing the new cashless catering system being rolled out by Powys County Council. All students will use the cashless catering system to purchase any items from our canteen, apart from hot drinks from the vending machines which will remain coin operated.
