Welcome to EduBase Public portal

The up to date database of educational establishments across England and Wales.
Select education phase and location to quickly find a suitable establishment in your neighbourhood or define advanced search criteria to investigate education opportunities across the UK.


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.
