Types of Education  Kindergarten  Primary School (Grundschule)  Secondary General School (Hauptschule)  Intermediate School (Realschule)  Grammer School (Gymnasium)  Comprehensive School (Gesampt schule)  Vocational Training  Abitur Kinder Kindergarten (literally translated: a garden or yard for kids) is not a part of the regular public school system and is not required or free. Tuition is normally based on income. Even though it’s not mandatory, over 67% of 3 to 6 years olds attend them.Kindergartens are usually run by churches, organizations and private companies. Primary School (Grundschule) From the age of 6 through 9 all children must attend Grundschule or primary school. Here they one teacher that will teach them the basic skills like reading, writing and math and religion.
  • 2. 5th and 6th grades (the “orientation” grades:) it is decided which track the student will go to next. Hauptschule (Secondary General School) The lowest track in the German education system is the Hauptschule (General school). It’s starts with 5th grade and goes up through the 9th grade. A Hauptschule is a school where the students prepare for occupations that required training. After a student graduates a Hauptschule they can go on to a vocational school which lasts about 2 years. Realschule (Intemediate School) is a school that’s a little more advanced that the Hauptschule. Here students learn the basic subjects which will prepare them for a mid level job in business. In a Realschule it’s possible (if a student receives high enough grades) to transfer to a Gymnasium. Gymnasium (Grammer School) The gymnasium is one of the tracks a student could go to after primary school. This school prepares students to enter a university. The gymnasium goes for eight years or from the 5th through 13th grades. Here students learn subjects like German, math, physics, chemistry, geography, biology, art, PE, religion and history. They are also required to learn two foreign languages. Abitur It is a crucial examinations that German students take this week long test at the end of their 13th year. If they pass the Abitur they receive a maturity certificate that let’s them into a University.

Teachers in Germany All pre-school staff (Grundschule) are trained at upper secondary level. Teachers are trained at universities and colleges of art and music, and pass the first and second (state examination) in usually two subjects and in educational science. Primary teachers are generalists and secondary teachers are subject specialists. Teachers are generally employed by the Land and have civil servant status.

These are almost always mixed sex, and usually located close to the child's home. Children tend to be with the same group throughout the day, and one teacher has responsibility for most of the work they do. Parents are strongly encouraged to help their children, particularly with reading and writing, and small amounts of homework are set to all children, even during the early years at school. Secondary schools (11 - 16 year olds) Most children transfer at the age of 11 - usually to their nearest secondary school, though the law allows parents in England and Wales to express preferences for other schools too. A place has to be offered at the parents' preferred school unless the school has more applicants than places; in that case it will admit the children who have the highest priority under its published admission arrangements which can vary a little in different places. Most secondary schools cater for both sexes. They tend to be much larger than primary schools.
  • 10. Independent Schools 7% of the children in England go to independent schools. Independent schools are known as private schools and public schools . Parents pay for their children to attend these schools. Public Schools A public school is an independent secondary school. Public schools in England are not run by the government. The entrance exams used by most public schools are known as Common Entrance exams and are taken at the age of 11 (girls) or 13 (boys). The most famous public schools are Eton, Harrow and Winchester. Prep Schools A preparatory school is a school to prepare pupils to go to a public school. Higher Education Around 30% of the 18 to 19 year olds enter full-time higher education. The formal entry requirements to most degree courses are two A-levels at grade E or above. In practice, most offers of places require qualifications in excess of this.
