The College uses online systems including CristalWeb, Google and the Parent Portal for teaching, studying and communicating with students and their parents/guardians. All of these systems can be accessed from the College, home and abroad, from your PC, as well as your mobile.
You will be encouraged to take responsibility for your own learning. Your attendance, achievements and time-management will be carefully monitored and shared online with you, your parents/guardians, teachers and Personal Tutors.

Students are provided with a Google account, which is used for emails, document creation, collaboration and sharing, unlimited storage and much more.
Subject Tutors share information with students using the Google tools, including Google Sites, Google Classroom and Google Meets.

Our Google powered 'Study Directory' also links to the online Learning Resource Centre, where you can read magazines, journals and newspapers, watch course-related television programmes and view the extensive library catalogue.
Our students are given a free subscription to Microsoft Office 365 as part of our wider Microsoft licensing programme. Students will be provided with instructions on how access this subscription when they join the College.
