Google Classroom

For Google Classroom, go to
Use your school email address to log on, and the password you reset it to when in school.

Every teacher is using Google Classroom to publish lessons as per their normal timetable.  This means that, where possible, students who are absent from school should be able to continue their learning as though they were present in school.

Please look at each subject as per your child's timetable for the day and make sure you click onto each subject's Google Classroom rather than the 'To Do' link.

If you find that no work has been set as per timetable, please email the appropriate classroom teacher or leave a comment on the subject's Google Classroom for the teacher to respond.

Students in Y7, Y8, and Y9, and students in Y10 and Y11 who use computer rooms for their normal lessons, used their first lesson to ensure they were able to log on, and to write down their details on page 15 of their school planner.

Students in Y10 and Y11 have also used their first 'computer room' maths lesson and their 'Personal Study' session to log on.

As a parent or carer, you can get email summaries about your child's activity in Google Classroom. Every parent or carer email we have has already been added.  Please contact the school office if you would like your email adding.

Email summaries do not include grades. For grades, ask your child or contact the teacher. 

In email summaries, you can review:

  • Missing work—Work not turned in when the summary was sent.
  • Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails).
  • Class activities—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers.

Year 7 John Smith =
Year 8 John Smith =
Year 9 John Smith =
Year 10 John Smith =
Year 11 John Smith =

If your child cannot remember their password, please contact and they will reset the password during normal office hours.
