actually it's years 7 - 11 for secondary school, then 12 & 13 are college years before going to Uni, 6th form is 6th form college.

Primary school ages 5 - 12 (years 1,2 Infants (keyt stage1), 3,4,5&6 Juniors (keystage2))
secondary school ages 12 - 16 (years 7,8,9 (key stage 3) years 10 & 11 (keystage 4 / GCSE))
6th form / college) 16 - 19 (depending on course length e.g. 3 year GNVQ)
University anything depending on Gap years and mature students, but usually 18 - 21


the of course there are private schools who might take years 1 - 9 (KS 1 -3) but not GCSE, and specific infant / junior schools etc...

but the year number to age range is always constant, (ignoring those either held back or excelled through years).

I'm in the UK, so no medical insurance.

But we're still taxed up to the eyeballs.
