Our family is moving to London in the next Protected content (we just found out) and I need to quickly be brought up to speed on the school system in the UK. In particular, I need to understand secondary school and sixth form/ Protected content . My oldest son is currently in Grade 11 in Canada. I've been told that you need to choose a school - and then find a place in that catchment area. We will be travelling to London in a few weeks to find housing. Can anyone provide any guidance or have any suggestions?
