Academic Learning

All learning for each subject will be set on doddle via department areas.

The learning set will be a mixture of online and offline tasks that do not require a computer. For offline tasks a computer will only be required to find out what the task is. You will find all the websites needed using the following links:

Microsoft 365 & Teams

Each student has a Microsoft 365 account that they can access at https://www.office.com. This account provides students with access to cloud based versions of Microsoft Excel, Powerpoint & Word for them to be able to complete tasks; it also gives them access to Microsoft Teams, which we will use to issue work for selected subjects.  It also provides them with cloud based storage in the form of One Drive, which allows students to access their work both in and out of school and share documents with staff as necessary.  Students access this service by entering their Office 365 username and the password they use to log on to a PC in school.  Any issues accessing Office 365 accounts should be directed to [email protected] or [email protected].
