To support Remote Learning and homework at King Edward VI High School, students have access to Google Classroom through their school accounts. On this page you will find everything you need to know about using this service.
Google Classroom may be used for homework and project by teachers and is also sometimes used for live lessons. This does not replace our main information and homework system, Go4Schools.
How does it work?
Google Classroom is very easy to use and helps you keep up-to-date with homework or remote learning. Download our user guide here. You may also use the Google Meet feature for live lessons.
If you experience any problems accessing or using Google Classroom, try the following:
Change your web browser
If possible, try using Google Chrome as it works best on this browser. If you don't have it, ask your parent/carer for permission to download for free.
Open in a Private/Incognito window
When you browse the internet you leave cookies and caches behind which can cause compatibility issues. Try opening a Private or Incognito window and then login to Google Classroom via RM Unify. Apple iOS users often experience this problem so a private window may help.
Sign out of other Google accounts
If you use personal or other Google accounts your browser may automatically try and open Google Classroom with one of these accounts - this will not work. Either make sure you are logged out of other Google accounts or use a Private/Incognito window.
Make sure you login through RM Unify
Your Google Classroom account is linked to your school account. It is best to login to Google Classroom through RM Unify.
