Understanding the British school and educational system. You start with nursery and then you go to primary and secondary schools before making a choice as to whether you want to go on to a college or sixth form and then perhaps onto university or vocational studies. Lots to get through so sit tight!
The reason why we’ve made this video is because everywhere in the world has different education systems and they can be so hard to understand. When you meet Americans, for instance, ‘college’ means ‘university’ and suddenly there’s lots of different words like Sophomore and Freshman being thrown around and it’s all very hard to understand. We hope this video helps to clear up some confusion!
Of course none of this applies if you are one of the lucky British children that get chosen to go to Hogwarts!
