It is not possible to say how many listed buildings are currently in use as school buildings. The English Heritage Listed Building System records the number of listed buildings in the category of schools as:

Number
Grade I 195
Grade II* 494
Grade II 4,688

These figures include buildings that were originally built as schools, but are now in another use; buildings that were used as a school as part of their chronological history; and buildings that, since listing, are no longer used as schools.
