Your first opportunity to register your school is immediately after you register a profile as a teacher, when you will be offered the choice to join a school with a joining code, or search for and join a school.
If your school’s GO admin has given you a joining code, which will be in this format XX-XXXXX-XXXXXX, see our separate school joining code instructions.
If you choose 'skip for now', you can always set up your school later by clicking on Join a Schoo
Click Search for and join a school to find out if your school is already set up in GO. You will be asked for some basic details about your school. Please enter your details as accurately as you can.
If we find a school that we think is yours, you will be given a chance to join it straight away. If your email matches the domain name of your school, you should be accepted immediately. If it does not, your request will be processed manually.
If we cannot find your school, you will be asked to complete the registration process.
You will then be asked for address and contact details for your school. For security reason it is important to get these details correct.
Important: We will be unable to process your registration if there any gaps or inaccuracies in the information that you submit. Please ensure you use the correct address, give us a phone number for the school office where we can verify your identity if necessary, and most importantly do not use a personal email address.
It takes up to 3 working days to process school registrations, and we may need to get in touch for more information. While your request is pending, you will see this notice in your Profile:
Your request may be refused in certain circumstances. Find out more about rejected requests.
Note that by registering your school, you will become the first Admin at your school. The role of Admin means that you can:
- invite other teachers and students to join the school using a joining code
- make other teachers an admin
- bulk upload student details
You can nominate additional Admins at any time. Note that there must always be one Admin at each institution registered with GO, and it is the school's responsibility to make sure that this is the case. Please Contact Us to add an Admin to your school account.
