Important: Tucasi and Windows XP/Vista users

Dear Parent / Guardian,

What is happening?

Please be advised that from 30 April 2018 any users of Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Vista will no longer be able to make payments via the Tucasi Online Payments System which are processed by WorldPay. Unfortunately, users of these operating system may have to upgrade their systems to be able to make online payments from the 30th of April 2018.

Why is this happening?

This change is being enforced by the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).  From the 30th June 2018, all websites that accept card payments will no longer allow users of Windows XP and Windows Vista to use their websites. WorldPay are implementing this change on 30th April 2018.

What is the impact?

While you will be able to access Tucasi SCO, view the content and perform tasks in the normal way, you will receive an error message and payments will fail to process if you attempt to pay online. 

Please be aware this is outside the School’s control and we apologise for inconvenience that this may cause. Unfortunately, we will be unable to assist with making payments online using Windows XP & Vista following the 30th April 2018.

We will be posting this information on our Twitter feed too, follow @Tucasi for further information, news and updates.

Kind regards,


Iain Spirit
Head of Operations
Tucasi Ltd

We are almost there;

the library and planetarium should be furnished over the Easter break and then your children will be able to enjoy the benefits of this great new facility.

As we try to meet our target for fundraising there are two ways in which you could help us:

Both of these donations would make a difference for your child.

I intend organising an official opening in September, however, I also plan to open up the library after school in June, to allow parents to come and see what our new building has to offer.  I hope you will be able to join us; dates to follow.

There are other easy ways of supporting Winston, which cost nothing:

  • When shopping online or especially if you are booking a holiday or arranging insurance, please use Easygiving,
  • Click on the adverts on my blog every time you look at it

All the money raised will be used to enhance the learning environment for your son or daughter. Please help us.

Yours faithfully

Mrs Zoë Johnson-Walker
