Office 365 For Education

o365We are pleased to announce that we have now implemented Office 365 for Education for all students in Years 7 to 10. Our O365 service allows those students to download the full desktop version of Office to up to 5 home computers completely free of charge.

Students will need to log in to this website with their school email address and their normal network password. Download instructions are available here.

If students have any queries they should come and see the technicians in the ICT Support office at school.

Please note that whilst Year 11 do not have access (they are leaving us shortly and as the download is linked to their school account, Office would expire after 30 days), Microsoft have made O365 free to all educational establishments, so most ex-students should be able to sign up at college.

An additional aim is to help you help your teenager engage more positively and successfully with the careers services available to them at school or college.
