What are individual logins?
EducationCity provides each user with different levels of access via user specific logins (Admin, Teacher and Student user). What you see on EducationCity depends on which user type you’ve been set up as.
Student users can:
Please note: If you’re concerned about students remembering usernames and passwords, they can use the ‘Pick name from a list’ option via the school login.
Administrators have full access to the school subscription. In addition to the features available to Teacher users (see above), Administrators can also set school-wide preferences, such as:
How do students log in at school?
The best way to give your students access to EducationCity is by setting up a shortcut to the login page on the desktop of each device you use – students can then navigate directly to EducationCity and log in using their own individual logins. Any Activities and Tests completed once students are logged in will then be recorded for you to view in SuccessTracker, and students can access their own MyCities, MySuccess and MyRevision areas. If your school uses single sign-on (SSO), logging in is slightly different. For more information, please see the Single Sign-On (SSO) section of the FAQs.
How do students log in at home?
I’m a home educator. How do I log in?
Home educators can log in easily at any time via the Login button.

A trial gives your school unlimited access to all of EducationCity’s educational resources and features for 21 days. During that time, you, your colleagues and students can access the resources completely free of charge.
Can I share my trial with colleagues?
Yes, please do. We’d encourage you to share your trial with your colleagues so your whole school can explore our resources at the earliest opportunity.
How do I cancel my free trial?

Can EducationCity be used on tablet devices?
Yes. You can navigate through all of EducationCity, access our PlayLive games and view all Activity Sheets, Lesson Ideas and Teacher Notes on tablets. For our Learn Screens, Activities and Tests we’ve added a icon, which you’ll see throughout the site, to help you easily identify which content can be used on tablets in an up-to-date web browser. We’re constantly adding new tablet-friendly content for you to enjoy too. A quick way of seeing our new content (all of which is tablet-friendly!) is to go to the Teacher Area, which is accessible from the navigation bar, and select the ‘New Content’ tab. For content without the icon, we recommend you use one of the browsers available that stream Flash content on tablet devices. We’re whitelisted on Puffin Academy, which is a free mobile Flash browser created specifically for teachers and students. For more information on how to install Puffin Academy and use EducationCity on it, please click here for step-by-step instructions.
What is Home Access?
Home Access allows students to access EducationCity outside of school hours. This enables them to complete learning activities set as homework and study independently in their free time and holidays. As with EducationCity content accessed at school, all Activities and Tests completed at home are automatically marked via SuccessTracker.
How much is it to add Home Access to my school’s subscription?
Home Access licences are just £2.25 per child per year in addition to your school subscription fee.
Special Educational Needs
Can EducationCity be used for students with special educational needs?

In addition, often the operating system’s settings can be used to increase the mouse pointer size on screen or vary the volume of the audio files to help students with visual/auditory issues.
Is EducationCity inclusive?
