The DfE's schools financial benchmarking service allows you to find schools like our own and compare finance.


On the school page https://schools-financial-benchmarking.service.gov.uk/  click 'start a comparison', then choose from the options:

The data currently on the financial benchmarking service is based on 2021-22 data.

Bear in mind these key point.

  • Benchmarking is only a guide – you should also think about other things you know about your school when assessing the data
  • There's a lot of variation in school spending and it's not always clear why schools have different expenses
  • You can share more data by joining a benchmarking group through your LA or school business managers’ network
  • If you can't find many schools similar to yours, you may need to cast your net wider and just bear the differences in mind when comparing data


A benchmarking exercise is completed on an annual basis, based on data released by the DfE, and the findings are be reported to governors by the school business manager.
