New Students eg Year 7        Click for SMHW help Guide for new users (PDF, see page 2)

Students in Yr7-10:
If you have used a school computer, you have all the information you need:

  • On the SMHW website, or App
  • press the 'Sign in with Office 365' option - you will be prompted for your Office365 details, which are your school email and school password
  • eg   jane.bloggs@priestlands.hants.sch.uk
    Remember, this is your school computer username     jane.bloggs    with the addition of     @priestlands.hants.sch.uk


  • If you have an existing account with an older sibling, log in to it and add the new student using their Parent Code (see below for instructions on obtaining your code).
  • If you are a new parent, then select the option 'I dont have an account', and create one, using the Parent Code (see below for instructions on obtaining your code).

Nobody uses the Student PIN.

  Sign in with Office 365


Students, You only need to remember 2 things to log in:

1) SIGN IN WITH OFFICE 365 option

2) your school sign in details (username in email format)


When you first join the school, you MAY be given 2 sheets:

1 sheet with Student and Parent codes, see opposite, and our SMHW help Guide for new users (PDF)


Students have a PIN, but we dont use them - instead follow the instructions in our new users guide - you will be using the 'Sign in with Office 365' option.

Parents have a Parent Code, that can be used for up to 5 'parents'


Two Parents could choose to create an individual account each using their own email addresses, or they could choose to share one account, we dont care; the parent email address is simply used to send your Forgotten Password reminders to, or you can also elect to turn on a weekly 'digest' email in your Account Settings - this sends a summary email of the students homework every Friday evening.



Students - Find your Parent Code*:

Students - In the App, enter Settings (bottom left) and choose Parent Code.
Using the website access Account Settings from the top left of the screen. Your Parent Code is listed on the bottom right hand side of this screen.

The Parent Code should only be used to create a NEW parent account - it should not be used if the parent has simply forgotten their existing logon - in this instance they use the Forgot Password links.







Parents - Add an additional child:

Parents, to add additional siblings to your account, click Account Settings from the top left of the screen. Link another student to your account can be found in the bottom right. Type their Parent Code in there and submit.

In the App, click Menu - Settings - Student Management, and click the +

TeamSatchel Help article and video


For Yr 11 only, when access is completely lost:

The Student PIN is visible to the Parents (but we dont use them*)

Parents - on your website Dashboard*, at the bottom of the box for each child, click Show student's PIN to reveal their unique PIN*.

Within the app, Menu - Settings - Student Management.

*You DO NOT NEED THE PIN unless you have completely lost control of your registered personal email address and need to change the registered email - this will only be valid for Yr11 who did not have their school email address registered for them in SMHW;
Forgot SMHW passwords used with your personal email address are reset using the forgot password link.

Letters in the PIN must be typed as CAPITALS.
