External Access

Priory's students, parents and carers, and staff can access many of our online services from outside the school - for example, students can access their documents and email from home. Please use the large icons on the right-hand side of the home page to access the service(s) you require. We have published a Guide to External Access which you may find useful if you are a parent or carer.


How to open RTF files on a Mac

Some files on Show My Homework or the Shared Areas are RTF (Rich Text Format) files. These are very widely used as users don't need Microsoft Word to open them. Your Mac may already have Word installed (or a free office suite such as LibreOffice), but if not you can still easily open RTF files with its default text editor, TextEdit (right click the file and choose Open with > TextEdit). If you find that graphics in the RTF file still aren't displayed correctly, we recommend installing Bean, a small free word processor.
