Statistics: school and pupil numbers

Statistics on the number and characteristics of schools and pupils.

Changes to this release for 2019

We have reviewed the tables produced within this release. We are following the principle that we produce Excel tables for our highest profile breakdowns, with supporting underlying data files containing more detailed breakdowns.

This is part of DfE plans to improve the coherence of our statistics and approach to how statistics are given out.

Please see the annex document published alongside Schools, pupils and their characteristics: January 2018 for further details.

Statistics from May 2010 onwards are available on GOV.UK. You can find our archived statistics on the National Archives. Note: the search function is not available on archived content so please use the filters on the left of each page.
