Microsoft 365 and Free Microsoft Office
Every student at Alderman White School is eligible for a FREE copy of the latest version of Microsoft 365 to use on up to five devices at home. This is valid as long as you are a registered student with us and usually costs £79.99 per year or £8 per month. Simply download the apps and sign in using your school email address.
This includes the Microsoft Office apps for Mac and Microsoft 365 for Windows which features the following programs:
Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, Outlook, Skype and OneDrive
Within this package, OneDrive allows students 1Tb of cloud storage space to save their work into, which they can then access from in school and at home, so there is no need for USB memory sticks that can get lost or damaged. In the past, students have frequently lost coursework due to damaged, corrupted or misplaced memory sticks. Now, they can access all their school files directly from any supported device with a connection to the Internet.
