After primary school, students go to secondary school until they are sixteen (practical emphasis) or 18 (secondary school with 6th form – academic emphasis).
School in the UK is compulsory between the ages of five and sixteen. Children younger than five can go to a toddler group (accompanied by a parent), playgroup or nursery school.
Students who wish to enter the top UK universities normally follow a 2-year A level programme. The first year is known as “Year 12” or “Lower Sixth” and students normally study 4 subjects. The second year of the programme is called “Year 13” or “Upper Sixth”. Students in this year generally continue with 3 of the 4 subjects that they took in Year 12. This programme starts in September and ends in June.
Under some circumstances, it is possible for students to do an intensive 1-year A level programme; or to follow an 18-month course which starts in January and ends in June.
