Remote Access and BYOD

The school provides a variety of methods for accessing resources and working remotely from your own devices.  Please see the instructions below and for further help, see a member of ICT Services in B208.

Remote desktop is provided for staff and students to logon to a full school desktop with shared drives, home drives and all the standard applications that are available within school. It is not necessary to use Remote Desktop if you only wish to access the intranet or email. These can be accessed directly using the links on the right.

Additionally, Remote Desktop is an asset not a requirement for home work etc. Should it be unavailable, materials can be transferred to and from home using Office 365 OneDrive.
