Adobe Creative Cloud

Newcastle High School allows school students to install Adobe software for free on one personally owned device. This gives students’ access to Adobe Creative Cloud, Presenter, Captivate, Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements. Access for staff from one non-department device is made available by individual subscription under the work at home (WAH) program. The capacity of the device and the needs of the user determine which of these programs are installed onto the device.

How to access for staff and students

  2. Make your selection to purchase the Adobe Creative Cloud suite for free (there is a small discounted cost to staff).
  3. A product key will be sent to the DoE email address.
  4. Follow the instructions to download and install Adobe Creative Cloud and use the redemption key emailed to you to activate the licence. 

Please note:

  • The product key can be used only once on a single computer (Mac or Windows).
  • The licence is for the whole Creative Cloud suite, but you do not need to install every single program (for example, you may only want to install Photoshop and After Effects).
  • You can install/uninstall individual applications as many times as needed.
  • The licence must be renewed using the same process described above every year. Adobe will charge you the full amount if you do not keep the DoE licence active.
