Website Updates

Suzie Hunt By Suzie Hunt

We are revamping our sign up pages - make sure you are ready: Renew Now! ALL teaching planning and resources will remain fully available all through next week's changeover.

Over the past year, we have been revamping the Hamilton website in order to provide a blocked format for all subjects. Our new blocks make it easier to see the planning and access it more flexibly. You, the teacher, decide what to teach when, based on the needs of your own class.

To complete the transition, we will introduce new login and account pages on Thursday 23rd May. These will be easier for you to use and for us to manage.

In order to make the change, we have to turn off the 'My Account' section of our website for about 30 hours, from 9am on Wednesday 22nd May until noon on Thursday 23rd May. You will still be able to use all of the plans and resources, so long as your account is up-to-date on that date.

You may wish to check now that your account is set to take you straight through this period by going to 'My account' to find out when your access expires. If it expires before the end of May, we suggest that you take the opportunity to renew now. Look for the bright orange button on your account page, and follow the instructions.

Rate Increases

In order to ensure that we have sufficient funds to continue the rewriting and refashioning of our planning materials, we also need to ask for more help from our users. From May 22nd, Hamilton will be asking for a small amount more from everyone.

School subscriptions, which have not increased in price since 2010, will be set at £135/year (+VAT if applicable = £162) from 22nd May.

The last time Friends' donation rates went up was 5 years ago. From the 22nd, we will be asking Friends to donate £33 for a key stage for a whole year, still less than £3/month, for access to all subjects across two full year groups and mixed-year as well. You also have access to all Hamilton topics in all age ranges.

Our NQT/PGCE offer will also be changing. Instead of the current limited-time free offer, NQTs and PGCE students will be offered an introductory Friends' rate of £12 for a whole year of access to a key stage.

You can renew up until May 21st at our old rates if your subscription is due. Go to 'my account' at the top right of this page to see when your access expires.

Thank you again for all your support!
