Schools in the United Kingdom

Education in the United Kingdom is compulsory from the age of five to sixteen.
Children under five go either to nursery schools, or to playgroups. Both types of pro-primary
educational establishments are non-state; the difference is that a child spends the whole day in
a nursery school, while he or she can stay in a playgroup only for some hours a day. Anyway,
the main aim of such kind of establishments is to make the children ready for primary schools.
Children play, draw, model things from clay and learn to work together.
Compulsory education for all children begins at the age of five. There are 35,000 state
schools in Britain. All of them are the responsibility of the Local Educational Authorities (LEA).
They employ teachers and other staff, provide and maintain buildings, supply equipment and
materials, provide grants to students proceeding to further and higher education.
Primary school is for children from five to eleven. At first the studies are more like
playing than working; English teachers say that this is the best way for children to get used to
school. Probably they are right; children learn better when they play. Lessons usually last from
nine in the morning till four or five in the afternoon with a long break at the lunchtime.
At the age of eleven pupils go to comprehensive schools. Children usually wear a
uniform; it is different in different schools. They study Maths, English, Arts, English Literature,
Geography, one or two foreign languages, usually French, Italian or German, PE (Physical
Education), IT (Information Technology), Religion, Science, Biology, Sex Education and other
subjects.
At the end of their studies they take General Certificate of Secondary Education
examinations (GCSE) 0-level, and then they either leave school and start working or continue
their studies at school or at college for two more years. This is called the sixth form at school or
the sixth form college, and the students take only the subjects they need for entering the
university of their choice.
At the age of eighteen they take GCSE A-level. They usually take three or four A-levels.
There are no entrance exams to universities, so the students can enter a university or a college
on the results of their A-level examinations.
Speaking about education in the UK it is necessary to say that there is a great
difference between state education and private education. State schools are free, and about
ninety per cent of all children attend them. Private, or public schools are very expensive. These
are usually boarding schools, where children stay while they study, coming home only on
vacations. These schools are for children between thirteen and eighteen. Before entering a
public school children are usually educated at home. State schools are usually mixed, while
private schools are typically single-sex, with a few exceptions.

ETON

Eton is one of the oldest public schools in Great Britain. It is a single-sex school.
Today it is a secondary school for approximately 1,280 boys between the ages of 13 and
18, all of whom are boarders. Boys live in Houses. There are about fifty boys in each
House. Every House has its House Master.
For academic purposes, the School is divided into five Blocks, from F to B. Boys
normally spend one year in each block, moving up in September. On arrival in the
School, a boy is assigned a Tutor by his House Master, The Tutor's principal function is
to assist House Masters in monitoring academic performance; he also fosters his pupils'
personal, cultural, and social development. His pupils come to him in small groups once a
week for a Tutorial, in which they follow a programme of Study Skills, Personal-Social-
Health Education (PSHE — designed to raise a boy's awareness of moral, social, and
health issues), and topics chosen by the Tutor.
When the boy becomes a Specialist, i.e. when he enters C and embarks on A-
level work, he chooses a new Tutor. This will normally be a Master who teaches what is
likely to be the boy's principal A-level subject.
There are thirty-seven scheduled schools (i.e. lessons) a week in which formal
teaching takes place, but almost all boys have one or more reading schools (i.e. free
periods). Boys are taught in divisions (i.e. sets or forms) normally containing about ten or
twelve boys of broadly similar ability in the case of Specialists and about twenty in the
case of Non-Specialists. In each block, a programme of regular out-of-school work is laid
down.
There are a lot of facilities in Eton. Computing (along with Design and
Technology, Music, Drama, and Art) forms a compulsory part of the syllabus during the
first year and is an optional subject thereafter. In the Design Centre there are facilities for
woodwork, metalwork, silver-work and electronics. A huge number of boys have music
lessons, and there are numerous bands, orchestras, and small groups. Most departments
have a building of their own where the boys are taught.

15. READING FOR DETAIL. Read the text and circle the correct options.

As every parent knows, if you have children, you worry about them all the time. However, it
seems that these days we're worrying about our kids a lot more than we used to. Are we trying to
protect our children too much and will this cause problems for them in later life?
«In the past, kids in the UK used to walk to school every day, but these days parents don't let
their children go out on their own in case something bad happens to them,» said Dr Andy Hallett, a
childcare expert. «If children stay indoors all the time, they become unfit. This means they often have
health problems in later life.»
The dangers of letting your kids go out by themselves are smaller than you might think, «The
media makes parents worry about children's safety,* says Julie Benz, a child psychologist. «But children
are safer now than they have ever been. If parents want their kids to grow up healthy, they shouldn't
protect them so much. Children need to make decisions themselves.»
Over 27% of British children are now overweight, partly because they spend their free time
playing computer games and watching TV. We can understand why parents are concerned. But if kids
never go outside, they can't learn to look after themselves in real world.

Overall, therefore, the message is clear. If you want happy and healthy kids, give them back
their freedom.

There is one extra headline.

1. Studying from home. 5. Studying and living at school.


2. Personal development is important. 6. Specialized schools.
3. Modern tools for studying. 7. Assessing academic progress.
4. Finding the right activity for you. 8. High-tech school.

A. In the earliest days of computers the only computer education was about computers. We and
computers have come a long way since those days. Now computers have invaded into every aspect of
modern life. Education is no exception. Students can use word processors for writing, spreadsheets for
mathematics and science and databases For organizing information. Lately, the Internet has become a
recognized way of getting information.
B. There are many advantages to distance learning. For homeschoolers it's a great way to safely
get a head start on college before completing high school. In addition, many students don't have the
ability to leave home for maybe family or work obligations. Another huge advantage is the cost savings.
Through distance learning, you avoid room and board fees that will have to be paid by a student.

13
C. In Great Britain many children go to boarding schools. A good boarding school can he an
excellent placement for an orphaned child because everyone is treated equally and fairly there. Many
parents with non-traditional careers or those undergoing difficult transitions like divorce find boarding
schools excellent alternatives. Boarding school can help children grow in independence, and friendship
formed in boarding school often lasts a lifetime.
D. Considered by many to be a diamond in the rough of the Parkside area, the school boasts a
curriculum that encourages technological literacy. The 170 local 9 th grade students don't carry any
books or pencils. The school supplies every student with their own laptop. They create multimedia
presentations with Microsoft PowerPoint, receive assignments via e-mail and conduct research online.
So far, the unique program has had positive results.
E. Chorister's schools are educational establishments which have a special emphasis on religious
choir singing. These schools are usually attached to a cathedral, church or chapel, where the school
choir sings. Choir schools do not exclusively educate choristers: about 15 000 pupils are taught at
chorister schools in the UK but only around 1000 of those are choristers. Tony Blair, for example,
attended The Chorister School but was not himself a chorister.
F. For the majority of college and university students, involvement in extracurricular activities
plays an essential role in the collegiate experience. Students become involved in extracurricular
activities not only for entertainment, social and enjoyment purposes but most importantly to gain and
improve skills. A wide and diversified range of extracurricular activities exists on U.S. campuses,
meeting a variety of student interests.
G. The test is an important benchmark in ensuring that students will be successful in meeting the
challenges they will face either in college or the workplace. If they are not able to meet the standards of
the exam, how can we expect them to be successful in life? Examinations can be traumatic for both
students and their teachers. But just because nobody really enjoys them, we should not disregard them
as a necessary part of the education process.

 Попытаемся. В Великобритании образование обязательно для детей с 5 до 16 лет.
 Так вы пошли в школу в возрасте 5 лет, не так ли?

 Совершенно верно. Я поступила в начальную школу в 5 лет, а в возрасте 11 лет
поступила в среднюю школу.
 Я слышала, в Великобритании существуют разные типы средних школ.
 Ну, конечно. Есть общеобразовательные, грамматические, независимые школы…
 Какой тип средней школы ваши родители выбрали для вас, Джесика?
 Они отправили меня в грамматическую школу. Я учусь в грамматической школе
Уилтс в Лондоне. Это школа для девочек. Мне очень нравится моя школа. Там
прекрасные условия для спорта, хорошо оборудованные классы и очень уютная
библиотека.
 А что такое независимая школа?
 Я учусь в независимой школе. Это, в сущности, частное заведение. Моим
родителям приходится платить за мое образование.
 А общеобразовательные школы? Я думаю, это сейчас самая типичная школа.
 Общеобразовательные школы содержит государство. Образование в них
бесплатное
