This page is provided to provide Remote Access to the JKHS School Network.

There are three key steps for using remote access.  The process is determined by the operating system you are using.  Windows, for example, is different to Mac OS. 

Find the remote access application on your computer (in Windows this is called Remote Desktop).

  1. Find the remote access application on your computer (in Windows this called Remote Desktop).
  2. At the prompt about a security warning tick the box and choose OK – it is secure

  3. At the log-on box enter your usual network username and password. Your username should be in the format of JKHS-PD\username

You should now have access remotely to the School system.

If you are using an Apple computer or and android device, you could download an app called ‘Microsoft Remote Desktop’ available from your app-store. This can be configured to provide direct access. Please contact school if you need advice on how to use this.  All other options can be configured to suit your own needs / facilities. Using this method you will be directed to your school desktop. From here, you can use the normal method to navigate to your required files and applications.
