How do I register a school group?


Register your school group

During the registration process we’ll ask you questions about how you want your group to be set up:

  • Which assessments you want to be available
  • Who should be invoiced (the group lead, or the individual schools) and how you want to renew
  • Whether you intend for schools within the group to share data with you

The invoicing arrangements will determine who we credit check (if the responsible institution isn’t already a Cambridge CEM customer).


Share tailored school registration forms

We’ll create a tailored registration form for you to share with schools within your group, and we’ll ask you to provide an up-to-date list of the schools you expect to form part of the group (we’ll reference back to this list each time we receive an application to join the group).


Bespoke onboarding

The registration forms from schools within the group will come directly back to us. If the school is on the list you provided, we’ll process the application and provide them with access to the relevant assessment(s).

If there are any discrepancies, we’ll get in touch with you ahead of processing.

We offer free training webinars to all customers. If any of the schools in the group would benefit from those session, they can join a pre-scheduled session. Alternatively, we can create a session exclusively for the schools in your group. We’ll give you more information on that as we guide you through the welcome journey.


Share data

If you have data sharing arrangements in place with the schools in your group, you will (in most cases) be able to access the school’s data.

The data you’ll have access to does vary by product, but we’ll let you know what you can expect for the assessments you are subscribing to.



We’ll send an invoice towards the end of our first major testing period (usually in October), to whoever it was agreed we should invoice.

If you join us after October for that assessment year (i.e. you plan to test by June/August depending on your product), we’ll usually send the first invoice within 30 days of subscribing.

Our subscriptions roll over on 1 March, and we’ll be back in touch ahead of then to remind you of your renewal.

If you automatically renew, we’ll need to know about any changes to student numbers before 1 February, otherwise we’ll use the previous year's numbers (with the ability to reduce by 20%).


Ongoing support

We'll support you throughout your journey with us. We have a Help Centre to help schools with everything related to managing and completing assessments, and our friendly team are on hand to support you before, during, and after your registration with us.

You can contact them by emailing or calling +44 (0) 1223 790 122 (we’re available Monday to Friday, 08:30 to 17:00 UTC).
