You can access our Office 365 applications (word, excel etc) in several ways:

Via remote access

You can access this here where you will be prompted for your school username and password to log in.  This will give you access to a school computer which you can use just as you would inside of school.

Using 365 in the cloud

You can access this by visiting  Log in using your school username and password and then select the application you would like to use

By downloading the applications to your device

As part of our Office 365 membership you have access to download many of the Office 365 applications for free using your school account.  You can do this by access as above and then clicking on the install button in the top right hand corner.


Students can see a list of their homework assignments by accessing ClassCharts

At KSCS we know this is a really difficult time and students may feel they need to talk to someone about their wellbeing. Please contact us by email on Needtotalk [at] with a brief outline of how we can help (please make sure your parents/carers are aware) and someone will be in touch. Also please check out specialist support services available to all students on our website here


Our Wellbeing page has lots of useful tips and links

Your tutor is available via email should you wish to discuss any aspect of home learning.

Your class teachers are available to discuss any problems you may be having with the tasks set.

It's important to stay physically active during home learning time.  Our PE Faculty will share ideas and challenges via Connect and our Social Media channels.

Key Tips

Ensure you read regularly

Keep a regular routine - bedtime, morning, meals etc

Talk to your parent/teachers about any concerns and do seek help if you require it.

Don’t put too much pressure on yourself, working from home is very different from working inside school with the specialist support we are equipped to provide.
