School System

There are five tiers of the education level in the UK. There is the Nursery School, Primary School, Secondary School, Sixth Form/College and then University. However, compulsory schooling ends at secondary school stage. If any parent would like their children to go further in their pursuit of education, they can do so.


On deciding what schools you would like your child to go to, it is usually advised to start with an enquiry from your Local borough Council, who would be the best source of information to find which schools are within your community. Meanwhile, if you would like to see reports on the schools performance and how the British Education System works, links to the appropriate website are listed below.
