School Estate Statistics 2023

Statistics from the 2023 school estates core facts survey


This publication contains information collected in the annual School Estates Core Facts Survey on the condition, suitability and capacity of all local authority schools open on 1 April. Information is also collected on all schools that were built or substantially refurbished during the previous year (1 April to 31 March).

It does not cover grant-aided schools, independent schools or early learning and childcare establishments.

Local authority and school level information, along with historical data, is provided in the supplementary tables.

These statistics are used to monitor progress in improving the school estate and inform future spending decisions.

The statistics in this bulletin supersede all previously published statistics.
