Google Apps for Education

A safe, controllable environment for content creation, communication and collaboration inside and outside your school.

Google Apps for Education provides everything your school needs:
  • Security and privacy first.
    Google Apps for Education includes dozens of critical security features specifically designed to keep your data safe, secure and in your control. Your data belongs to you, and Apps tools enable you to control it, including who you share it with and how you share it. Our data centre network provides exceptional security and guarantees* reliable access to your data, 24x7x365.25 (that’s right: no rest, even on leap years).

  • Stay connected from anywhere 
    With Google Apps for Education, everything is automatically saved in the cloud - 100% powered by the web. This means that emails, documents, calendar and sites can be accessed - and edited - on almost any mobile device or tablet. Anytime, anywhere.

  • Bring students, teachers and teams together
    Fast, easy collaboration is what makes Google Apps unique. Our website and document creation tools offer real-time editing, powerful sharing controls, and seamless compatibility – an ideal environment for learning in the 21st century.

  • Get stuff done faster 
    Google Apps for Education can help streamline academic tasks like essay writing and class scheduling. A group of students can work together on a piece of work in Google Docs, seeing changes in real time rather than waiting for versions to be sent via email. Students can see exactly when their professors are available and vice versa with Google Calendar. By removing these time-consuming bottlenecks, Apps frees you up to spend more time on learning and teaching.

  • Invisible IT that just works 
    Spend less time managing your IT infrastructure. Your students, teachers and administrators always have access to the latest software, including the newest features and security updates. You don’t need to buy or maintain servers and everything can be managed from a single interface. And yes, it really is free.

  • Go Green
    Moving to Google Apps helps reduce both your organization’s overall expenses and its environmental impact. Apps is powered by Google's energy-efficient data centres, so it’s less energy and carbon-intensive than on-premise servers.
