Schools in Britain
Nursery schools or playgroups
Many British children attend a nursery school from the age of 3, but it is not compulsory. In nursery schools they learn some elementary things such as numbers, colours, and letters. Apart from that, babies play, have lunch and sleep there.
Primary education lasts for 6 years. It is divided into two periods: infant schools (pupils from 5 to 7 years old) and junior schools (pupils from 7 to 11 years old).
In infant schools children don't have real classes. They mostly play and learn through playing. It is the time when children just get acquainted with the classroom, the blackboard, desks and the teacher.
When pupils are 7, real studying begins. They do a lot of things in class. 40% of time — English 15% - Physical Education 12% - Art and Technology They also do Mathematics, Geography and History.
After six years of primary education children take exams in core subjects and go to a secondary school. Compulsory secondary education begins when children are 11 or 12 and lasts for 5 years. Most children go to state comprehensive schools. Parents do not pay for their education. It is free.
There are also about 500 private schools in Great Britain. Most of these schools are boarding ones, where children live as well as study. Education in such schools is very expensive, that's why only 5 per cent of schoolchildren attend them. The most famous British private schools are Eton, Harrow and Winchester.
Secondary school children study English, Mathematics, Science, History, Art, Geography, Music, a Foreign language and have lessons of Physical training. Religious education is also provided. English, Mathematics and Science are called "core" subjects. At the age of 7, 11 and 14 pupils take examinations in the core subjects.
After five years of secondary education, pupils take GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) examination. 60 % of children leave school and go to colleges for further education.
40 % of pupils study for 2 more years for "A' (Advanced) Level Exams in two or three subjects which is necessary to get a place at one of British universities.
