We are looking forward to things returning to normal and welcoming all of our students back into school.

However, as we are unsure of when we will be given the go ahead to re-open fully ‘Home Learning’ will continue for the remainder of this term. All year groups will now access their work through Microsoft Teams, via Office365. Year 9 and Year 10 will also have access to a timetable of Live Online Lessons on Teams, more details are available here.

The following video provides a step by step guide of how to access Microsoft Teams. 

Students should be logging on daily to their Microsoft Office365 account using their school log on. If you have any problems logging on you can send an e mail to it-support@alderchs.uk and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

School e mail is accessed through the Outlook app on Office365 and should be checked regularly.
