Register of Schools (England and Wales) (GB-EDU)

Description

Schools and Colleges in England must be registered with the Department of Education, and in Wales with the Welsh Government.[1]

The Register of Schools is maintained by the Department of Education and provides a URN for each school, university and other educational establishment in England and Wales.

The full Register of Schools in England is available (Alpha version) on https://registers.cloudapps.digital/registers?phase=in+progress. **The register for Welsh Schools is not yet launched and so all schools in Wales may not yet be present on this list.**
