St Edmund Campion is proud to announce that we now offer Microsoft Office 365 free for all students. Eligible students are able to download and install Office 365 ProPlus on up to 5 devices. 

Office 365 is the ‘cloud’ based suite of Office programs students already know and use every day. It is an additional product which compliments Microsofts existing suite of Office programs. Students can create, access and edit their files from virtually anywhere – PC, Mac, tablets or phones, and they’re always up to date. Started a document in school and want to finish it on the bus journey home? It’s now possible.

What happens when I leave school?

Before leaving, students must ensure they move any documents they wish to keep from their OneDrive storage to a suitable storage medium as their Office 365 accounts become inactive as soon as they leave.

There is a 30 day grace period where documents could still be retained but ICT Support must be contacted on helpdesk@stedcamp.bham.sch.uk to have your account reenabled for a short time. After 30 days of leaving the school, documents on OneDrive will no longer be accessible and will be deleted by Microsoft.
