VI. The next task is reading and explaining the text.
You know that British school education is one of the most prestigious all over the world. British children start school at the age of 5. But before school they usually visit nursery school. Nursery school is not compulsory. Those who don’t want to visit it stay at home. So pupils begin to attend school at 5. It is a primary school. Primary school lasts for 6 years. Primary school is usually a small school. It consists of a reception class or infant school (which lasts 1 year) and junior school (where pupils spend 5 years). At the age of 11-12 pupils move to a new school, usually comprehensive that accepts all the children from 3 or 4 neighboring junior schools. At this school they spend 5 years. All British schools are divided into two types: state schools and private schools.State schools differ from private schools. 1) State schools are free. Pupils don’t pay money for their education. And private schools are very expensive. Parents whose children attend private schools must pay a lot of money for their children. 2) There is no school uniform in state schools. But pupils in private schools have to wear school uniform. They wear dark suits, white or grey shirts, ties, skits or trousers. 3) The discipline in private schools is very strict, while the discipline in state schools is not very strong. 4) High quality of education is typical of private schools. The quality of education in state schools is not so high. 5) State schools are schools where boys and girl study together and private schools are usually single-sex. Most private schools are for boys in Great Britain.
( All state schools are divided into comprehensive and grammar. Comprehensive schools are schools which take pupils of all abilities. There are no entrance examinations here. Grammar schools are schools which take pupils of definite abilities. Pupils must pass a selection test.
British pupils finish school at the age of 16. At the age of 16people take their examinations. Most take General Certificate of Educations (G.C.E). After five years of secondary education, pupils take GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) examination. Compulsory education ends at 16. Then they may go to the 6th form college or just work.Some people leave secondary school and go to colleges for further education. Some choose to stay at secondary school for two years more and prepare for a university. Ordinary Levels - normally called just «O» Levels. People take O Levels in as many subjects as they want to some take one or two others take as many as nine or ten. If you get good «O» Level results, you can stay on at school until you are 19 in the Sixth Form. Here you prepare for Advanced Level Exams («A» Levels). Again, you take as many of these as you want to, but most people take two or three.
