  3. 3.  It occupies more than 70% of the school timetable, the rest of the time being used for subjects of the school’s choosing.  There are four key Stages. At each of the stages the core subjects of English, mathematics, science, technol ogy, physical education and religious education are taught.  History, geography, music and art are also compulsory subjects up to 16 years old, but they become optional in Key Stage 4.  A modern foreign language is added to the curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4.
  4. 4.  A system for secondary schooling in Britain, under which children take an examination, the “11 plus”, in their last year of primary education.  The results of the examination determine the kind of secondary schooling each child will receive.  Those with the highest marks go to grammar schools; others may go to technical schools, and the rest – by far majority – go to secondary modern schools.
  5. 5. Children all sat an examination known as the 11 + and they were allocated a school based on how they had achieved in that examination.

Only children who attended Grammar Schools could sit exams or go to college. There are still 164 staterun grammar

  7. 7.  A system for secondary schooling in Britain, under which all children, regardless of ability, can mix together.  In comprehensive schools, students study a wide variety of subjects at first until 2 or 3 years later, when they may study only those they like best.  Many new ideas in education are being tried out at present, and comprehensive schools vary widely throughout Britain.
  8. 8. The General Certificate of Secondary Education is taken at the end of compulsory education at the age of 16. All the students are required to take it.The results often help the students and their parents to made a choice whether they will go to college or not.
