Frequently asked questions

Mega Seating Plan was created out of frustration with creating seating charts by hand or through clunky Excel templates. It will save you hours of time every time you want to create a new seating layout for your classroom.

Simply import your class data, layout your classroom and generate your seating plan. Seating plans can be created automatically based on student achievement, targets, gender or at random. It can even keep chatty students as far apart as possible! You are in complete control: drag and drop to tweak your seating plans, then securely save them to the cloud.

Your seating plans can be automatically annotated with all the data that management or inspectors can desire. Upgrade to the Silver plan (just 99p/month) and you can also add student photos to your seating plans.

It is the choice of more than 29,000 individual teachers across the world, but is also available for whole schools to subscribe. With the Platinum plan, student and class data is automatically synchronised with SIMS and all other major management systems. At just £399/year, every teacher in your school gets these benefits and more. This is at least 78% cheaper than the alternatives.

Yes. You can create as many seating plans as you like for free. However, if you'd prefer to not be distracted by adverts and you'd like to take advantage of premium features, our paid plans are so cheap that they might as well be free too.

Even if you choose to subscribe, as an individual or as a school, Mega Seating Plan is vastly cheaper than the alternatives out there. The goal when I created Mega Seating Plan was to create something useful to save fellow teachers time, not to squeeze cash from schools and teachers.

For users on the Bronze (free), Silver and Gold plans, simply paste your data from a spreadsheet (which can be exported from SIMS or any other management system). For Platinum users, data will be automatically synchronised with your management system, so you can focus your time on more important things.

We are dealing with children's data, so I take security and privacy very seriously. You connect to Mega Seating Plan through a secure https connection: this means that data sent back and forth between your computer and my server is encrypted. Any student data that is personally identifiable (including names, email addresses and photos) are stored in the database encrypted. This means that in the highly unlikely event of a data breach, your students' privacy is maintained.

You can read more about privacy, data protection and compliance with GDPR in the links at the bottom of this page.

My name is Rob Cowen. I am a full time science teacher in the UK, taught in the USA for a while, and am also behind Cowen Physics. I created Mega Seating Plan during a half-term break in October 2015 because I thought it might be useful and, so far, about 29,000 teachers agree.

Mega Seating Plan Ltd is a British company owned 100% by me.

No. When you sign up for Mega Seating Plan, you also get free access to Mega Reports (to speed up report writing), Mega Feedback (to speed up providing feedback to students) and Mega Name Picker (to randomly select students in your class). There's even a free Android app to let you use some of these things while you walk around the classroom.

There's more to come, too. All users will soon have access to Mega Teacher, a short/medium/long-term teacher planning tool. Those users on paid plans will also soon have access to a great new tool for helping you to learn the names of your students... before you even meet them!
