Unfortunately, there have been some severe breaches across our student email system from some students over the last few weeks. These breaches have had a considerable impact on the integrity of the system and the well-being of some of our students. Therefore, we have decided to shut down all email accounts until the beginning of 2022. We will tighten up our access protocols and ensure all that use the system are familiar with and abide by our ICT Acceptable Use Policy.
