Payments are made to the Finance Department for a huge variety of items and the following guidelines enable the Finance Department to allocate payments promptly.
We accept payment by card, cash, cheque or BACS. You can also pay for a range of things via the Arbor parent app.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘The Canterbury Academy Trust’ and handed into the Finance Office before the start of lessons, posted to the address below or payments can be made by BACS to the account specified on the invoice.
It is important that invoices for Music Tuition are paid by the date specified on the invoice in order to guarantee students’ lessons are timetabled in.
When making payments via BACS, please ensure you give the student’s name as a reference and the reason for payment, e.g. A Walker – Music Tuition.

INFORMATION FOR SUPPLIERS
All requests for goods and services should only be accepted on an official Purchase Order from The Canterbury Academy.
To speed up payment of invoices, please mark them for the attention of the Finance Office and indicate the Purchase Order number on the invoice.
Invoices are paid by The Canterbury Academy up to 30 days from the invoice date unless previously agreed otherwise with the Finance Manager.
It is the Academy’s policy to pay invoices by BACS to reduce the opportunity for fraud and cheques missing in the post. Therefore each invoice should bear the bank account details to which payment should be made.
