We host a comprehensive list of every school in Scotland, broken down by local authority, school type, postal area, pupil and teacher numbers, city, denomination, ethnicity, and proportion of schools attending from most relatively deprived zones in Scotland (SIMD).
This Data Asset is used to identify school interaction, reach and engagement with the arts and culture sector in Scotland, and is of particular use to those organisations with a programme of events based around the Scottish National Curriculum. It is also useful for demonstrating reach and impact when applying for funding.
Q: What local authority areas do my school attenders come from?
We update this data set annually since data can easily go out of date, especially if schools have merged, moved, closed or altered their names. Comparing this information year on year it is possible to spot trends and see where the interest of schools may be growing or diminishing.
