    I quite like this format as it uses the student name and shows year group.

    intake year, surname and first initial so a year 7 called Sophie Jones would be 13JonesS

    We use:

    Students: e.g. - 13robertsa (Year Joined, Surname, 1st initial of first name)
    Staff: e.g. - janderson (1st Initial of first name, surname)

    For students, makes it easier knowing from quick glace on what year group they are in and where their profile is stored. + Makes it easier for Students and Staff to remember usernames

    Staff are jbloggs and students are 08nathanz.

    08 being the year of entry, then their first name, then the first letter of their last name.

    Staff are j.bloggs and students are a 4 digit code starting with the last digit of the year they started (3xxx for our current year 7s) which becomes their candidate number.

    Staff are just jbloggs and students get two digit starting year with their first initial and surname I.e 12jbloggs

    I always strip out apostrophes and hyphens as well. Keeps it simple!

    Used to be year of entry + 1st letter of forename + surname but changed it to 2 letters of forename to help with duplicates.

    joe.bloggs


    or joe.bloggs1 for duplicates.

    they have enough trouble remembering that, I can't imagine the chaos with a random number!

    Same here. It used to be jbloggs but with the duplicates and tracking down of users i've now changed it to joe.bloggs with a number for duplicates.
