School Email

At the beginning of Year 7 you are issued with a school email account.  Use this email at all times when you are communicating with teachers or the school.  Your ICT teacher will explain some of the other functions that you can use in Office 365.


Thornden Cloud

Thornden Cloud is a way for you to connect them to the school network from home. It gives you access to your school files and the student share when you are at home. Your files and shared resources are always stored on the school network, they are NOT stored on the Thornden Cloud. You simply have to go through Thornden Cloud to access the school network when you are at home. You do NOT need to use the cloud in school! Please read the instructions below about using Thornden Cloud.
