Our license agreement with Microsoft entitles all staff and students to install 5 copies of the latest version of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Access and a few miscellaneous applications) on personal devices. They are expected to delete the software when they leave Presdales School.

Your son/daughter should log in to their email account in the usual way, go to the ‘cog’ top right, > Office 365 > Software, then follow the onscreen instructions.

Make sure the PC or laptop is connected to a mains supply because it might take a few hours and you will get better speed if the PC is connected directly to the router by ethernet cable.


Click on the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and go to Your app settings > Office 365
