Dear Mr Goodchild,
Thank you for your request for information received on 5^th June 2013. You requested:


“a list of all independent schools in the UK along with the heads/bursars name & email

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and a  copy of the
information as held by the Department as at 6^th June 2013 is attached. 


I have prepared for you on an Excel spreadsheet –


A standard extract of all Independent establishments in England with addresses, Head Teacher
details, school email addresses and telephone number where available.


At present the Department does not hold individual email address information for Head
Teachers or any information on individual data on bursars due to the amount of changes and
data fields that would need to be added to the database.


The extract can be sorted to your own requirements by Local Authority etc. Further
information on these and other terms used within this extract can be found in the EduBase
glossary:  [1]


As part of the data extract we have included the school Unique Reference Number (URN) so
that if you require further information on any particular school record please go to
[2] where you will be able to view more information.


The Department does not hold information for educational establishments in Scotland, Wales
and Northern Ireland. This information may be available using the following links:


Scotland  [3]




Northern Ireland  [5]
