NSW government school locations and enrolments

The master dataset contains comprehensive information for all government schools in NSW. Data items include school locations, latitude and longitude coordinates, school type, student enrolment numbers, electorate information, contact details and more.

This dataset is publicly available through the Data NSW website.

Data Notes:

The NSW government schools master dataset is based on the census of government school students undertaken on the first Friday of August 2016.

Data is suppressed for indigenous and LBOTE percentages where student numbers are equal to, or less than five.

NSSC out of scope schools will not have an enrolment figure.

LBOTE census is conducted annually in March. Data is updated every October to align with NSSC data availability.

ICSEA values are updated every April with the previous year's ICSEA values. The master dataset is currently displaying 2015 figures. Small schools, SSPs and Senior Secondary schools do not have their ICSEA values published by ACARA.

Following the introduction of part-time study in secondary schools in 1993, student enrolments are generally reported in full-time equivalent units (FTE). The FTE for students studying less than 10 units, the minimum workload, is determined by the formula: 0.1 x the number of units studied and represented as a proportion of the full-time enrolment of 1.0 FTE.
