Work package 5: consistent schools database

As part of the project to link educational data, the ‘consistent schools database’ (CSD)  has been created to enable researchers to track the performance of schools more accurately and efficiently than ever before, helping to paint a clearer picture of education in England.

The resource provides data on school performance, alongside information on school mergers, splits, closures, openings, and changes in school status from 1999 to 2014.

Researchers interested in using the CSD can request the dataset by emailing, explaining who you are, where you work and what research you intend to carry out using the data.

The database was created by Bilal Nasim and was funded by CLOSER.
