Students in all year groups have access to Office 365 email accounts. Staff emails are available in the email directory which can be used for matters relating to their study. Each year group and subject has its own intranet page. If you are experiencing issues please email email@example.com and put the name of the teacher in the subject line.
If school closures measures are put into place, we still aim to have a presence from a small number of staff on the school site. This is to enable deliveries and queries to be dealt with.
