If you do not have the Microsoft Office suite installed at home, you can access this by going to https://www.office.com/ and signing in with your school email address and computer password.

Emails and School Work

Work is set for students who are isolating using the Student Gateway. You can access this by clicking the blue box below.

Student Gateway

Your username is your email address, for example 12345@twynhamschool.com, and your password is the password that you usually use to get on to the computers while you are at school. Once you are on the Gateway, go to Microsoft Teams and access your classes, following your normal school timetable:

Life outside of School Work

Other than keeping up with your school work, it is really important that you look after yourself. You can do this in lots of ways, for example making sure that you carry on with things you enjoy, like playing football in the garden, or reading a good book. Below are some more tips on what you could be doing.
