Exercise:1.Read the text and write down the types of schools.(Schools in Great Btitain)
In Great Britain children start going to school when they are five and continue studying until they are 16 or older. Compulsary education begins at the age of five when children go to primary school. Primary education lasts for six years. First they attend the infant school from five to seven. There is no written timetable and classes are informal. From 7 to 11 pupils attend junior school, which is the second stage of primary education. In primary school children are taught core subjects the so-called 3R's: reading, writing and arithmetic. They also have music, physical training and art classes.
At the age of 11 most pupils go to secondary schools or comprehensive schools. These schools accept children of all abilities without entrance exams. About six per cent of students go to grammar schools, which take students who pass the eleven-plus examination. Grammar schools lead towards higher education, whereas comprehensives give general or vocational education.
At 16 pupils take national exam called GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) and then they can leave school if they wish. This is the end of compulsory education. Some 16-year-olds continue their studies in the sixth form at school or at a sixth-form college. The sixth form prepares pupils for the national exam called A-level (Advanced Level) at 18. You need A-levels to enter a university.
Other 16-year-olds choose to go to a college of further education to study for more practical (vocational) diplomas re to the world of work, such as hairdressing or mechanics.
Along with the state schools, there are about 500 private schools in Britain. Most of them charge fees. Some private schools are boarding schools, where the children actually live in the school. Many schools admit day pupils as well as boarders. Private schools usually ofier only the most academic line and select those students who are most likely to succeed. The most expensive private schools are called "public schools" and they have a long history and tradition. Among the most famous public schools are Winchester, Eton, Westminster, Rugby and Harrow.
