Your education

Use this guide to find out more about your education. 

Why should I go to school?

While it may not seem so important now - getting a good education at school will help you in the future to go to university, have a good career, or start your own business.

Do you hear that all the time? Well – that's because it's true!

We know it can sometimes feel like a chore, but, you know what? School can be great fun! School is a great place to spend time with your friends, to learn new things, to get involved in sports, art and drama.

You can find out more about the world and the things that interest you. Sometimes it can be annoying to be told what to do by teachers, but that is their job and they have to make sure that you are learning so you have a great future.

Do you have any ideas about what you might like to do when you grow up and leave school, college or university? You could do anything you want if you set your mind to it!

Did you know that there are over 40 looked-after children in Lambeth who are at university at the moment, training to be doctors, social workers, accountants, architects, business people and other exciting professions?

That could be you too if you work hard now at school and college. And remember, working hard at school and college means that you can still have fun with your friends – but, you have to do some studying too!
