From birth through to adulthood, education is vital to the development of children and young people and many continue to learn beyond the compulsory school age requirements.

Some children may start their learning earlier if parents/carers decide to access early education and childcare. Find information on childcare provision in the Childcare information and early years section of this website.

Use the category buttons to find information about individual schools, colleges and learning providers. An interactive map is available in your search results that can show you which ones are nearest to your home.
