Using G Suite

Here at Lewisham College you have a G Suite account which allows you to communicate with other people, create documents, share your work and much more. There are lots of different apps available, covering a very wide range of uses. For example, you can create a website using Sites, organise your time management with Calendar or create a survey using Forms, to name but a few! You can also use Google Docs, Sheets and Slides in much the same way as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Much of the G Suite is also available to download on smartphones and tablets, as well as being available via PCs, Chromebooks and Macs - with your account you can access your files on a range of different devices as long as you have an Internet connection.

To access your G Suite account you need to sign in to Google using the following: <yourstudentnumber>@student.lewisham.ac.uk and then entering your network password. Your student number is on your ID card and you will create your own password at the start of your course.

Follow the links in the "App name" column below for help with using some of the G Suite apps:
