We do not hold central records for title deeds; they are the responsibility of the organisation that holds the title to the land on which schools are situated. Title deeds for local authority maintained schools will be held by each local authority. The deeds for an academy's land interest (usually a long lease) are held by each academy trust and sometimes also the local authority or diocese freeholder of the land.
