British boys & girls begin to go to school at the age of 5. They draw pictures, sing songs, play games, listen to stories & tales. British children begin to read & write when they enter the infant school. Little children are divided into 2 groups, according to their mental abilities. Children leave infant school when they are 7 years old.They begin to study at junior school where they learn to write, to read & to do mathematics ( maths ). Boys & girls have got many interesting school subjects. They are History, English, Geography, Maths,Art, Music, Sport, Computing, Cooking.

They are : grammar schools, modern schools & comprehensive schools. English boys & girls go to a secondary school from 11 till 16 years old. They dont go to school on Saturdays & Sundays. One can attend modern schools, but pupils dont learn foreign languages at such schools. If pupils go to grammar schools theyll have a good theoretical secondary education.The other secondary school is a comprehensive school. Almost all secondary school pupils ( 90 % ) go there. There are some private schools in England. Boys & girls dont study together at these schools. The sons of the aristocracy go to public schools & their parents pay much money for their education. Independent & preparatory schools are private schools too. They prepare pupils for public schools for money.The teachers of the private schools pay personal attention to each pupil.
