School Estates Statistics

Description: Statistics on the extent, value, condition, capacity and running costs of the school estate.

Revision: Please note that information on the number of schools which were rebuilt or refurbished (either by direct capital funding or via PFI/NDP) in 2007/08 and 2008/09 was revised in the 2010 School estates publication. The 2008 and 2009 publications have not been updated to reflect this, however the 2008 and 2009 datasets, which provide information at a school level, have been revised.

2010 and 2012 have been corrected to take account of revised condition information for four East Dunbartonshire schools in 2010 and three in 2012 and differ slightly from previously published figures.


As of December 2011, school estates statistics are now included in the publication Summary Statistics for Schools in Scotland. Supplementary data is available on the datasets page.

Frequency of publication: Annual
