Answered by: Mr David Laws
Answered on: 09 February 2015

The Department for Education collects information from local authorities on the number of school places in state-funded primary and secondary schools as part of the annual School Capacity Collection. The most recent data available relates to the position at May 2013 and is published online at:

www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-capacity-academic-year-2012-to-2013

Equivalent data for 2010 can be found at:

www.gov.uk/government/statistics/school-capacity-2009-to-2010-final

Data to May 2014 will become available shortly.

A comparison of the position in 2010 and 2013, showing the net change in capacity, is given in the table below. Positive figures indicate an overall increase in places; negative figures indicate an overall decrease in places. A decrease in places can be the consequence of actions to address oversupply and remove unsuitable place provision, or of restructuring the school system. Figures for local authorities that have restructured middle school provision or introduced all-through provision between 2010 and 2013 must be compared with caution.

The Department does not collect capacity data at constituency level; Basingstoke constituency lies within Hampshire local authority.
