Schools

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-marys.oxon.sch.uk

Applying for a sch.uk

Schools 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
  • Registrar’s (hosting ISP’s) tag

Where groups of schools are forming a consortium for the centralised provision of teaching or 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 of £5 + VAT. We will invoice the applicant directly and register the domain name on receipt of payment. Sch.uk domain names are not currently subject to a renewal fee.

Where to apply

Applications for new domains should be made in writing to:
