Durham Johnston Comprehensive School

Dare to be wise


The aim of this section of the website is to be a host and an access point to the school system Remote Access and Office 365. You will also find links to other useful e-learning services.


Outlook - School email and single sign on service for Office 365.

Use your school username and password to log into this. For example:

Username: 06jb01

Password: ****

Once you are logged in there is an option to go straight into your emails or log into your SIMS ID which will take you through to your office 365 services without having to log in again.


Office 365 login - Office 365 is coming to Durham Johnston School. You will soon be issued with a username and password to access your account.


Remote Desktop -
July 16 - We now have an "app" layout for remote access. To view your files, click on the "Explorer" icon. From here you will be able to see your files and the network drives and be able to open the documents within them. Please note, due to the network work taking place this summer, some apps are still in the process of being installed. 
There is now no need to place bsfaddcc\ before your username.


SIMS Learning Gateway - Parents and Students will soon be able to log in to view school announcements, attendance, behaviour events and school report. This is a new system to Durham Johnston and usernames and passwords will be issued in due course.


Parent View - Let Ofsted know your view of our school

Important: You can only use Remote Access with Internet Explorer (Not other browsers such as FireFox or Chrome) using a Windows operating system. If you are using a different operating system such as Android, Mac, iPad etc then Microsoft offer a free "Remote Desktop Client" app.
