Applying for a School Domain Name

Schools in the UK are eligible to register a .sch.uk domain name of their choice. These domains follow the format school name.area.sch.uk. For example a .sch.uk domain name could look like st-bertie.county.sch.uk

Applying for a .sch.uk domain

Schools or their representative local authorities can apply to register a domain name if they do not already hold one. Applications should be made in writing to Nominet detailing the following:

  • School name
  • ID number
  • Postal address
  • Contact name
  • Contact email address
  • Preferred domain name [Check Here]
  • Registrar's (hosting ISP's) tag [contact school hosting]

School consortia are also now eligible to register a .sch.uk domain name. The lead school in the consortium should apply for the domain name using their name and contact details for the registration process.


Where groups of schools are forming a consortium for the centralised provision of IT services, either led by a Local Authority or a school group, a .sch.uk domain name can be registered.  The Local Authority or lead school in the consortium should apply for the domain name using their name and contact details for the registration process.

Fees

New schools in England, Scotland, Wales, independent schools, school consortia and schools that wish to change their existing domain name will need to pay the registration fee paid to Nominet. Nominet will invoice the applicant directly and register the domain name on receipt of payment.

Sch.uk domain names are not currently subject to a annual renewal fees.
