Secondary Education
The main tiers of school education in the UK:

Nursery or primary school, attended from 2.5 years to 7-8 years of age
Preparatory School, attended between 7-8 to 13 years of age
Secondary School, attended between 11-13 to 18 years of age
In the United Kingdom children begin their education
at 5 years of age and continue studies until they are 16.
Schools can be either state where tuition is offered
at no charge, or non-state public where tuition is paid.
The most celebrated institutions of the latter type are Eton College, Harrow, Radley, and Winchester schools.

The main subjects are literature, English, foreign
languages, mathematics, natural sciences, and additional options varying from school to school. In the course of their education students regularly sit for nationwide tests,
the Standard Assessment Tasks, or SATs.

Upon completing secondary education all students pass
final exams and obtain their first certificate, the General Certificate of Secondary Education, or GCSE.
The GCSE exam tests a young person's knowledge
of each subject they had studied and is comprised of 3 parts which are course work, a theoretical task, and a practical task.

Upon obtaining the GCSE Certificate of Secondary Education
at the age of 16 the student may continue their education at either a college or a university.

British schools enjoy world renown due to the qualities they emphasise in child development. These are discipline, efficient problem-solving and critical thinking skills, all of which
are essential for a successful career.

Why parents choose boarding schools
Boarding schools are both schools and residences. Here children both study and live. Boarding schools offer sporting and artistic extracurriculars along with classes. The environment at a boarding school is ensured to provide comfort and safety for the child as well as an outstanding education.
