Five Acres High School

Technical Support

All of your work will be set on Google Classroom in your subject classes. You need to log in to Google Classroom using your school account (username@5acreshighschool.co.uk) and school password. If you are using a smartphone or tablet, downloading the Google Classroom app is the easiest way to access the lessons set.

How do I logon to Google Classroom? 

1. Go to classroom.google.com and click “Go to Classroom”

2. Enter your username and click Next. This is the username that you use to log into computers in school, for example 20smithj@5acreshighschool.co.uk (the year you started year 7, your surname, and the first initial of your first name).

3. Enter your password and click Next. This is the password that you use to log into computers in school.

4. If there is a welcome message, read it and click Accept.

5. Click “I'm A Student”, then click “Get Started”.

If this doesn't work, or you are asked to enter a code, you may have logged into a personal account rather than your school one. This has accounted for 80% of technical support queries. To switch accounts, please click here.

If this still doesn't help, we may need to reset your password. Please email support@5acreshighschool.co.uk and we will be happy to help.
