Information about schools and pupils is published in the annual ‘Schools, pupils and their characteristics’ statistical release: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/schools-pupils-and-their-characteristics-january-2017.

Data for each school is available under ‘Underlying data: SFR28/2017’ of the annual ‘Schools, pupils and their characteristics’ statistical release, contained within the sub file ‘SFR28_2017_Schools_Pupils_UD’. The figures can be filtered by phase-type grouping, including state-funded nursery (column N), and full age breakdown (columns AC to AI, BA to BG, BY to CE, CW to DC).

Information about earlier years can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-school-and-pupil-numbers.
