The education system here in the UK may be different to the one back in your home country. The table below will help you to identify which school your child needs to go, followed by additional information on each type of school.
The links to the schools below are for state schools. There are fee paying schools that are available around the area, for these schools you will need to apply directly to them.
Make sure you know what time your child starts and finishes school. It is important to plan and make sure your child gets to school on time and picked up on time. If you cannot pick your child up and require someone else to pick them up, do inform the school. The school may sometime ask for a safe word to ensure the child is being picked up by the correct person, and for safety purposes.
Also until your child is 18 they must either go to college or gain an apprenticeship/ traineeship. For more information on compulsory schooling please look at ‘Compulsory Schooling’ in 'Schooling information' section.
