Towers School and Sixth Form Centre

Online accounts and third party access

Towers School uses Google Apps for Education for pupils and staff.  All of Google services are available to each pupil and hosted by Google as part of the school’s online presence in Google Workspace for Education. Students have access to Google Mail which is an individual email account for school use managed by the school. They also have access to Google Calendar which is an individual calendar providing the ability to organise schedules, daily activities and assignments. Students also have access to Google Docs and Slides - a word processing, spreadsheet/slides, drawing, and presentation toolset that is very similar to Microsoft Office Sites - an individual and collaborative website creation tool. Using these tools, pupils collaboratively create, edit and share files and websites for school related projects and communicate via email with other pupils and members of staff.  These services are entirely online and available 24/7 from any Internet-connected computer.  The school believes that use of the tools significantly adds to your child’s educational experience.
