Chapter 2: Schools built or substantially refurbished

The 2020 School Estates Core Facts Survey collected information on all schools that were built or substantially refurbished during the financial year 2019-20. Only builds or refurbishments costing at least half a million pounds for primary and at least one million pounds for secondary and special schools are reported here.

Table 2.1 shows that 30 schools were built or refurbished in 2019-20. Of these, 23 were primary schools, six were secondary schools and one was a special school. Since 2007-08, 958 schools have been built or substantially refurbished.
