Education in Great Britain

At what age do children go to school in Britain?

Children in Britain must attend school from the age of 5 (4 in Northern Ireland) until they are 16. Before the start of formal schooling, many children attend nursery schools or nursery classes attached to primary schools. In addition, some parents elect to send their children to private (fee-paying) nursery schools or kindergartens. In England and Wales, many primary schools also operate an early admission policy where they admit children under 5 into what are called reception classes. Children first attend the infants' school or department. At 7 they move to the junior school and the usual age for transfer from junior to secondary school is 11 (12 in Scotland).

What are the different types of secondary school?

Over 85% of secondary school pupils attend comprehensive schools. These take children of all abilities and provide a wide range of secondary education for all or most of the children in a district from the age of 11 to 16 or 18.
