A complete, cloud-based solution for your classroom applications.
The main Microsoft programmes plus a lot of extra features and cloud-based storage – for free. Office 365 Education can be a great option for schools and colleges seeking an easy-to-use, collaborative platform.
The basic A1 package is completely free for unlimited users, but you can upgrade if you need more features. However, with the basic A1 platform offering online use of the main Office applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote and Outlook) plus additional features such as MS Teams, Exchange and Stream), you might never need to subscribe.

A cloud-based IT solution for schools
How Microsoft Office 365 Education can help your school or college.
You don’t purchase and install Microsoft Office 365 Education. Instead, you subscribe to the platform and access everything through your cloud account (like Google’s Workspace model).
All your most-used MS applications, such as Word and PowerPoint, are accessed in this way. Because so many workplaces and businesses use MS packages, learning to use them at an early age is a real benefit for young users.
Your school will be able to use MS Exchange for email, with all staff and students able to have an Outlook account and email address. These are customised under the school domain name.
When students are allocated their email address, they can use it to access features such as MS Teams – which as we’ve all learned, is an excellent tool for remote learning as well as school-based collaboration. Students can access their account from their home laptops or smartphones.
Safe and accessible storage in Microsoft’s OneDrive
Microsoft 365 schools packages come with unlimited cloud storage on your MS OneDrive account. The system is regularly updated – and this is automatic, saving the IT team or administrator a job.
