Dear Department for Education,
As per the freedom of information act, could you please provide me with the general contact email addresses for all high schools and higher education establishments currently operating within the UK. This obviously includes grammar schools, public and private schools, colleges, polytechnics, medical schools and universities and any other I have not mentioned here.
Only those currently operating that have general contact emails for general enquiries are necessary.
Yours faithfully, and with thanks,

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 12 March 2015 is attached.
I have prepared for you a CSV file that contains –
A standard extract of all Educational establishments (including, LA Maintained, Independent, Academies, CTCs, Free Schools, Studio Schools Further Education and Higher Education) in England with addresses, Head Teacher details, school email addresses and telephone number where available.
At present the Department does not hold individual Head Teacher or school staff email information, and for this reason we have supplied you with the school email address where possible.
The extract can be sorted to your own requirements by Phase of Education (primary, secondary etc.) or Type of Establishment (academy, free school, community school, etc.). Further information on these and other terms used within this extract can be found in the EduBase glossary: http://www.education.gov.uk/edubase/glos...
