Welcome to the EduBase public portal.

The Department for Education's register of educational establishments in England and Wales.
Using the search box below select school type and location to quickly find establishments in your local area or use the advanced search page for further search criteria including establishments that are closed or planned to open in the future.


From this page you are able to perform a simple search of all open establishments in England and Wales.

If you leave a field blank, the default will include all establishments.

The 'Show me' drop down list allows you to select the type of establishment you wish to see in your search results.

You have the ability to search by location, and can set a radius of inclusion. If you do not set a radius, it will search for exact matches only.

When searching by establishment name, often it is best to search for a single word in a name. Sometimes the name on EduBase may differ slightly to the commonly used name.

Church of England is generally referred to as CofE in EduBase.
