Personally, I would still keep the .sch.uk as well as most systems will handle this being an alias. If you are going for a short address (and there are many reasons to do so) also remember that there are a raft of other schools who may have similar names. You may end up with someone getting .com, another .co.uk, .org, etc ... so you need to be careful. If you are going for a domain of your own then I also tend to recommend that you protect your domain and grab all of them to prevent others parking something on there. If you want a short primary domain though ... you are a school ... not a profit making organisation and you are in the uk ... so .org.uk fits the bill.
If you have a trading section of your school then use .co.uk for that bit ... as it can help to mark them as separate.
Then again ... I'm a bit of a traditionalist on things like this.

I hear the RBC's are now able (theoretically) to offer schools the free Janet certificiates, but only for the .sch.uk domain.
The first school I ever loooked after was an independent and we lept at the sch.uk domain as soon as it was available. Until very recently they still used it, but now they do seem ot be having a bit of an identity crisis.

In which case .region would actually be .l(e)a

They are theoretically able to do lots of things. Actually doing them can be a different issue
