Louise, the UK:

In the UK you usually spend 13 years school. School starts at 8.50 am and we have a registration period every day. We have a one-hour lunch and school finishes at 3.30 pm. My school sells sandwiches but there’s not much . There are also vending machines that you can buy from, but generally students go into town or bring their own lunch to school.

I don’t pay for textbooks I use in class but I do pay for books, which I use at home. We have to return the textbooks to the school at the end of the year.

In general, schools in the UK are free but students at independent (or ) schools have to pay fees. Some of the independent schools in the UK are very indeed – schools like Eton have a long and it’s very tough to get in. I believe all schools should be free because people pay enough to cover the cost of education in Britain.

In the UK we have just about every of school under the sun: single-sex schools, mixed schools, boarding schools, independent schools, religious schools, schools, drama schools, technical colleges – you name it, we have it.

The relationship between teachers and students is quite . We the teachers as
“Sir” or “Miss”. I don’t think anybody would call a teacher by his or her name, even if they asked us to. I would probably think that the teacher was too hard.
