Connecting to school WiFi
If you're a member of staff or student, and want to connect your own device to the school's WiFi:
Cherwell staff and students can access the school's free WiFi by connecting to eduroam. This will only need to be setup once, and you'll stay connected to the network at Cherwell and at thousands of locations throughout the UK. See eduroam.org for further details.
NOTE that cherwellschool.org accounts are currently unable to roam internationally due to technical limitations. If this is a problem for you, please contact IT Support.
eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions, without any complex setup.
