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, SEN status, 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 individual teachers across the world, but is also available for whole schools to subscribe. With the Platinum plan, student and class demographic data is automatically synchronised with SIMS and all other major management systems. At just £499/year, every teacher in your school gets these benefits and more. This is substantially cheaper than the alternatives.

And there's more... whole-school Platinum subscribers can tailor their subscription by adding additional features, including synchronisation of student assessment/target data and downloadable student documents.

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 we 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 our server is encrypted. Any student data that is personally identifiable (including names, email addresses and photos) are stored in the database encrypted. This means your students' privacy is maintained, even in the worst-case scenario of a data breach.

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 62,000 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 Homework, 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).
