||<p>Figures on the number of pupils in independent schools in England are collected
annually in the statutory school-level annual school census (SLASC). Figures from
January 2017 by single year of age can be found in national table 1c of the statistical
release ‘Schools, Pupils and their Characteristics’ available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-school-and-pupil-numbers"
</p><p>As education is a devolved matter, statistics on schools are published separately
by the four administrations. Therefore, figures on the number of pupils in independent
schools in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales should be requested directly from
the individual administrations.</p>
