Good news, as a student at Ian Ramsey CE Academy you are now entitled to install the latest version of Microsoft Office on your computer or mobile device!

Below is a FAQ detailing exactly what you get and how to install it, but as I'm sure some of you won't read it all here are the key points:

  • You can install Office on up to 5 devices.
  • ​Once you leave Ian Ramsey Office will stop working
  • It will replace any version of Office already installed so think carefully before installing it over a copy your parents purchased or which came with your device!
  • The school is NOT responsible for your computers, mobile devices or any software installed on them (including Office). We will not fix faults. We are simply giving you a license to use Office, troubleshooting issues are down to you.


Now you have read the above go to and log in with your school email address ( and usual computer password. Leave version as “32bit” and click install. Open the downloaded app and leave it run.

Done! :)
