I go to Brookfield School in Cambridge. Brookfield is a secondary school. In Britain we start secondary school when we’re eleven or twelve. We can leave school when we are sixteen but lots of people stay until they are eighteen. We go to school from Monday to Friday. We starts school at 8:30 a.m. and stop for lunch at 12:45 p.m. we eat in the canteen or take a packed lunch. We also have school in the afternoon and we usually finish at 3:30 p.m. I do lots of things after school. I do gymnastic on Tuesday and go to the science club on Thursday. We do sport on Wednesday afternoon. My favorite sport is netball, but we also play hockey and football. The thing I hate about my school is that we have an hour of homework-every night.
The school year has three terms. The autumn term starts in September. We have a week’s holiday for half-term in October and three weeks for Christmas holidays in December and January. The spring term usually starts on the 5th or 6th of January. We have a week’s holiday for half-term in February and two weeks for Easter. The summer term starts at the end of the half-term holiday in June and the summer holidays usually starts the second week of July. We have about six weeks’ summer holidays. I like the holidays!! My school is great but I hate the uniform (and the homework!).
