How to join a live session

All our live sessions take place using Microsoft Teams.

Sessions can be joined from your PC, laptop, i pad or phone, although they are best viewed on a large screen if possible.

First ensure that you have Microsoft Teams downloaded onto your device. Click here for a link to a video explaining how to do this.  It is also advisable to  download the APP version of Microsoft Teams.

The sessions work best if you are logged onto your school Microsoft Teams account using your usual email log in details, although it is possible to join an event on a different Teams account as a guest.

All links to our live sessions can be found by clicking on the relevant year group on the home page as shown in the photo here.



This will bring up a choice of subjects, each showing the day and time of the session (also available on our timetable). If you select the subject you would like to join, a pop-up box will appear. This shows the date and title for each session. Clicking on the session that you want will take you directly to the Microsoft Teams page for that session. If you do this before the session time, you will see a screen that tells you the live event hasn’t started yet. It will start automatically when the session goes live.

At the bottom of the pop-up list you will also see a link to any resources that are available for the session. Some sessions have resources such as worksheets or exam questions. You don’t have to print these off, they are there if you would like to use them. Please note, there are not resources for all sessions.

Once the live session starts, you will be able to interact by typing any questions you may have into the chat function on Microsoft Teams. Our live event producer will read and respond to your questions or pass your question onto the teacher at a suitable moment during the session so they can respond.
