The educational system of Great Britain has a number of differences:
- breakdown of the academic year into trimesters
- availability of short holidays during the trimester,
- an uncertain start date for the school year.
The academic year in England consists of 3 trimesters. The duration of the entire studying is 38 weeks. The curriculum is divided by holidays: summer - 6 weeks, Christmas - 2/3 weeks.
1 week break is given in the middle of each trimester - such an adapted system in England exists for a long time.
Studying usually takes place from 9.00 to 15.00 - 5 times a week on weekdays. There is no such thing as a "second shift" or "saturday electives" in England.
The management of each educational institution usually regulates the date of the beginning of the academic year - the start of the holidays will depend on it in the future.
