In Wales, all teachers and their students can get Office 365 free, instead of about ₤60, thanks to an initiative of the Welsh government.

It’s worth checking what access to the full Office suite your school, college or university kids might have.

The Welsh government has arranged this as part of the HWB scheme that provides resources to Welsh schools.
