Hi, I'm trans and have been going by a different name for over a year now. I haven't gotten it legally changed yet so my new name is not on any official things. However I want to changed on the register at school. Do I need my name to be legally changed to be changed at school? If so who do I talk to about getting it changed on the register?

Hi there.

I think that if you're certain about your name change going ahead to be legally changed, then you can inform your tutor about this. I imagine that once it is legally changed, your student profile, lanyard/ID and other student databases and accounts can be updated through your tutor sensitively discussing it with your school IT team and other teachers/staff.

How old are you? If you're under 16, are your parents/guardians supportive of your decision?

When you turn 16 you can draw up a deed poll yourself and update your name everywhere.
