Email access and cloud storage

Our College Google Apps platform is a place for pupils and students check their email and access their secure cloud storage (called ‘Drive’).  Think of your ‘Drive’ as an online memory stick to transfer work between College and home.  You can also use your ‘Drive’ to create collaborative documents that you can work on in real-time with others (good for project work!)

To access Google Apps click on the link below or the logo above and log on with your Sixth Form email address and password which was given to you at the start of the academic year.

If you can’t remember your Google Apps email address and/or password or require a new one setting up please contact your form tutor or one of the IT Technicians.

Pupils that left our College last year may download a copy of all of their data to possibly later import into their work/University systems.
