When is it better to go to school in England UK?

At what age is it better to go to school in England?

Many believe that in order to study in England to send a child to British school it is desirable as soon as possible (Ideally - in the first class). As arguments, they lead rapid adaptation, mastering English, an increase in the chances of enrolling in a prestigious secondary school . All this is true only if the child speaks English as a native language, is in a language environment (for example, he regularly visits an English-speaking development center or a kindergarten).

Otherwise, the junior high school student risks staying in the British boarding school with a language repetition. He will have to spend a year studying English. Only then it will be possible to begin to master the school curriculum.

In a more favorable position, as practice shows, there are teenagers 11 - 13 years old. They quickly learn English, often surpass the peers of the British in terms of knowledge of grammar, easily adapt to the new environment. At the same time, children inEnglish school after the first year of study does not pass examinations (due to the peculiarities of the system). They still have at least a year to update the subject knowledge and acquire new skills before attestation.

Experts believe that it is more rational to send children to Britain children in 10 - 13 years. Teenagers are already independent enough to live in a boarding house, more relaxed than kids, perceive parting with their parents. The level of their subject knowledge fully corresponds to that of the British. In schools, initial training is at an altitude. Children in grades 1 - 4 receive a quality basic knowledge base. To enter a British school, they only need to focus on learning English. Classes with a tutor help to bring knowledge to the necessary level.
