According to the Department for Children, Schools and Families, there are 793,000 empty places in England's schools.

(There are 3.4 million secondary school places, 310,000 of which are unfilled, and out of a total of 4.2 million primary school places, there are 483,000 surplus places. Although I have to say, it is a bit late for me to anything about it!)
