There were 2,443 independent schools registered with the Department for Education on 3 February 2012, excluding academies and free schools. Of these, 441 were specially organised for special educational needs (SEN). As the age ranges of independent schools vary considerably, it is not possible to give separate numbers of primary and secondary schools. In 2010 there were 2,412 schools, of which 497 were specially organised for SEN; and in 2011 there were 2,418 schools of which 459 were specially organised for SEN.
