For Rachael...


My good friend Rachael (you are my friend aren’t you Rachael?) asked me to clarify how the schooling system works in the UK.

So here goes:

Kids start nursery between the ages of 3 and 4. They then go into Reception, Year 1 and so on.

The classes I teach constitute these ages:

Year 7………..11-12
Year 8………..12-13
Year 9………..13-14
Year 10………14-15

Year 11………15-16
Year 12………16-17
Year 13………17-18


The cut-off date is 31st August. Shira, who is born on this date will therefore be the youngest in her class. Had she waited about eight hours to pop out, she could have been the oldest!

Rachael, I hope this clears things up!
