Both classes must share at least 50% of the same pupils.

Both classes cannot have more than 10 additional pupils.

You will be presented with the class view page for your selected lesson, where pupils are displayed in their set seats.

Click on the Rearrange button along the top of the class.

Select Copy seating plan from the list of available options.

The Copy a seating plan from another lesson will appear. Select the eligible class of your choice and click on the OK button.
