I work for an English Language School in the UK. I have spent the last few weeks registering the school with a lot of directories. I recently used Alexa on our website and when I viewed how many sites were linking in hardly any off the directories were there neither was our facebook profile which has a link to our site. Why is this?

Because Alexa, I believe, uses Google to check backward links, and they only show a handful of your links not all of them. Please see the pinned thread in the link building forum regarding checking backlinks.

in addition.. a lot of directories have long delays or dont even bother listing your site.. unless of course you opt for the paid inclusion, which can be just as bad anyway.
Facebook - i've only recently seen facebook links to a site for the first time this month.. they're normally not counted and unlikely to show up in google.
