School is where you get your education as a child and young person. Some young people are taught at home instead of school.

You start primary school full-time in the September after you turn 4. You have to stay in education until you’re 15 or 16, when you’ll take GCSE or BTEC exams in Year 11.

When you turn 16, you can choose to go to sixth form or college to continue your education. 

If you want to know more about going to school, then you could try speaking to a trusted adult or contact us on the Meic helpline.

You could also try some of these services for information or help:

We have lots of blogs on Meic. These are some of the ones about being at school:
