The English National Curriculum is organised into blocks of years starting with Early Years Foundation Stage, which caters for students aged 3 to 5 years.

The students then move into blocks called ‘Key Stages’ (KS).

Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 are referred to as Primary Education, while Key Stage 3 is the start of Secondary Education.

In Key Stage 4, the students start their General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE), Years 10 and 11.

In Sixth Form, the students start their A-level or BTEC Diploma courses, Years 12 and 13.
