Email addresses and telephone numbers for educational establishments: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

FOI reference: FOI/17/01528
Date received: 3 July 2017
Date responded: 7 July 2017

Information requested

Information on all preferred contact email addresses and telephone numbers for all pre-schools, schools, PRU, Exclusion Units, colleges, sixth-form centres, and any other similar educational establishment within Scotland.


The information you have requested on all schools in Scotland is available from the Scottish Government website.

However, we do not hold any information on the names of headteachers or their contact details, therefore this is exempt under section 17 of FOISA.

To assist you further with your request, you may find it helpful to contact each local authority who may be able to provide you with the details you require. The following website will take you to a list of all 32 Scottish local authorities which may be of use.

The information you have requested on all colleges in Scotland is available from the Colleges Scotland website.

Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to provide you with information if it is already reasonably accessible to you. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the Scottish Government or Colleges Scotland websites, then please contact me again and I will send you paper copies.

May I also suggest that you contact the Scottish Government, by email at, who may be able to provide any other additional relevant information you require.
