here is a link for multi line labels. The syntax is like:

Field1 || ‘\n’ || Field2

with \n for new line

In the menu layer labelling you can press on the "E"-symbol and then create a combination of different labels.

Showing school and number of student should look something like this:

    "Name of School" || ', ' || "Number of students"
