Education System Overview

There  are  several  options  to  consider  when  choosing  a  school  in  the  UK.  State  schools, predominantly  co-educational,  are  government  sponsored  and  tend  to  attract  local  pupils within  a  catchment  area.  Some  schools,  both  state  and private,  are  based  on  a  religious foundation  and  can  be  of  a  very  high standard.

School qualifications explained

The UK education system is divided into nursery, primary, secondary and university education. The National Curriculum regulates the content taught and assessments carried out across State schools. In this section, we list the most popular school qualifications available in the UK.
