We use our .org.uk name for our school site, though our EMail goes through LEA systems and uses their .org address (which is shared by multiple schools).
The kids also used to have a .sch.uk address for EMail but recently they have been receiving an address on the LEA's .org domain.
We are an independant and we use .co.uk have had the address since before 2000 so silly to change.
All my schools used to .lancsngfl.ac.uk and are now .lancs.sch.uk
A few are longwinded as they conflict with other schools with the same name and get a -pri added in but everyone seems happy with them
I use it at my schools, simply because:
1) comes as part of the deal with the webspace so why would SLT pay the extra
2) shows it's an official site
I have one school though that has a .co.uk which is longer than their sch.uk address!! I'm sure that defeats the object! lol ..
I suppose if you have one, you might as well use it, even if you just have is as a parked/forwarded domain to your posh .com etc, just means it shows it's an official site and all that.
At the current place we use our .sch.uk address but at the last place we used .org.uk but had the .sch.uk redirect to the .org.uk.
We have .net, .com and .sch.uk but sch.uk and .com redirect to .net
We use ours, for both email and website. However at the end of this academic year we are stopping. For email anyway. As RM charge the LEA about 28k for the whole authority per year.
Doesn't seem too bad - unless your LEA is RutlandAs RM charge the LEA about 28k for the whole authority per year.
We use our sch.uk address for our website and staff e-mails, students use our .co.uk domain for their mail.
We are independent and use .co.uk
There are 3 other prep schools in the locality - one is owned by GDST and uses a .gdst.net domain, one uses .com and the third uses .co.uk like us
The 2 private secondaries here use .co.uk and their rival in the next town uses .org!
