  • Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus

    King's Norton Boys' School has an agreement with Microsoft to provide staff and students with the entitlement to access Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for free. This service is provided by Microsoft and not KNBS. This allows you to install the latest version of Office applications including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote Access and Publisher  on up to 5 devices. In addition you will have access to your own OneDrive facility removing the need to use USB devices to transport work between home and school.

    Once installed, your device will contact Microsoft every month to ensure you still have an active account. When your account is no longer ? the software will enter "Reduced Functionality Mode" which means you will only have the facility to view documents and not create or edit them.

    By taking advantage of this benefit you accept responsibility for the installation, configuration and support of the software offered. King's Norton Boys' School is unable to offer technical support on personal home computers.
    King's Norton Boys' School recommends staff and students to maintain a backup of their files (wherever they are stored).
