The best age to enroll in an English private school is 13 years old (by 1st September). At this age, the student automatically gets in the 9th grade. This is the year before the two-year GCSE program. For a whole year the student will learn different subjects and smoothly come to the examination program. The standard program will include: mathematics, English, physics, biology, chemistry, history, geography, additional language, computer science, sports, religion, and health sciences. Next year (10th) will require the student to select some subjects.
