Resetting Passwords

We have taken steps to prevent passwords from resetting during this time, however, should you have forgotten your password or unable to login to Google Classroom please follow the steps below.

1) If you have signed up for the password reset tool you can reset your password remotely automatically by answering your security questions here.
2) If you have not signed up for the password reset tool, please contact us using the form here to request a password reset and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Contacting Teachers and Staff

You can continue to use your school email account to contact your teachers should you require further clarification on the work you have been assigned. When composing an email type your teachers’ surname into the “To” box to automatically fill in their email address. Google Classroom also has a private comments section for assigned work where you can have a private conversation with your class teacher without the rest of the class seeing it.
