Most Android phones will not work with Westside’s wi-fi, but here are instructions for the few that will.

When you're in a Westside school...

Tap Settings

Tap Internet/Network/Connections (named differently depending on phone model/OS version)

Tap Wi-fi

Tap WCS Wireless (If you don't see this network then your phone is too old to use the school's wi-fi network)

Note: some Android phones may say "No Internet Connection" for as long as a minute before saying "Connected". Some Android phones never connect, sorry!

If you need access to youtube or anything Google related, you'll need to install our Internet certificate.

Open Chrome

Tap in the address bar at the top

Type in

Follow the instructions on the page for Android

I've added my own notes to the instructions on here:

You must set a screen unlock PIN or password for Android to allow the steps below

  1. Click the 'Root Certificate' button to download the certificate (it will mention that it has not been installed yet, but it will download in the downloads folder)
  2. Navigate to Settings > Security > Advanced Settings > Encryption & Credentials (this route may differ depending on the phone)
  3. Select "Install a Certificate" > CA Certificate > Install anyway (making sure you choose CA Certificate is the most important step)
  4. Enter PIN
  5. Select the certificate downloaded
  6. Certificate is installed
