  • Login to Office 365

    In order to help our students prepare for success this school year, Ysgol Friars are providing Office to every student free of charge. With Office 365, your child will now have access to the latest version of Word, for writing; Excel, for spreadsheets; PowerPoint, for presentations; OneNote, for organization and note taking; and much more.


    • Install on up to 5 compatible PCs and Macs, plus 5 tablets (including iPad!)

    • Use with OneDrive for automatic device syncing

    • Gain valuable skills on the world’s most popular productivity software

    • Office subscription lasts for as long as your child is a student here and the program continues

  • Instruct your child to follow these simple steps to get Hwb Office 365:


    For PC and Mac:

    1. Log in to Hwb and navigate to Office 365.
    2. Click on the Install Office dropdown (in the top right hand corner).
    3. Click Install software.
    4. Under My installs, click Install Office.
    5. Follow the on-screen instructions (installation can take a while depending on the Internet connection speed).
    6. Once installed, open an app such as Word and read and accept "The fine print".
    7. A pop up will appear asking you to select a Default File Type. Select Office Open XML formats > Click OK.
    8. Click Sign in to get the most out of Office (in the top right hand corner) and enter your Hwb username and password. This will connect the additional services to the Office installation, such as OneDrive.

    * Your child will need their school email address to sign in - which is:

    (where <HWB ID> is will be what is generated from the HWB website when they first start at Ysgol Friars).
