    I was born July 1974 and started when I was 5, went to primary when I was 7. I`m racking my brains to think if I`ve forgotten a year but I clearly remember on my 5th birthday my mum saying that I`d be starting school soon which would have been september.

    Ok just found out that it looks like I`m wrong, there is 3 years in infants but for some reason I started a year later than everyone else so I did miss the first year of infants but went to primary like everyone else. Can I get a refund for the year missed??? lol

    I started school on the 14th September 1978, the day after I turned 5, I remember that I was always the oldest in the class. I did 3 years of infants, 4 years at junior school, then 5 years at secondary/high school. Finished in 1990.

    Here's my school life just put down in text for me to see i'm right about my school life time.

    Year 1: 4 to 5 year olds (I'm the oldest in the year so 5)
    Year 2: 5 to 6 year olds
    Year 3: 6 to 7 year olds
    Annex(Year 4) 7 to 8 year olds
    On to Upper school Year 5: 8 to 9 year olds
    year 6: 9 to 10 year olds
    year 7: 10 to 11 year olds
    Off to high school age 11
    1st year 11 to 12 year olds
    2nd year 12 to 13 year olds
    3rd year 13 to 14 year olds
    4th year 14 to 15 year olds
    5th year 15 to 16 year olds.

    Phew there mine seems to pan out right! I can name all my teachers for each year too.

    Anyone born after August 31st is to late for a September intake,and thats why there is such a big age difference between some children.
    you have some memory heather.

    think i started in 79.
    never did nursery school.
    79 to 85 primary school
    85 to 88 secondaty school.
    88 to 91 college.

    I never missed a year, but had to go to a special school for just over a year because I had slipped behind, I went back to another standard primary in the same year I wuld been in normally.

    Being born in August has its disadvantages educationally. I was in a primary school with kids who were up to a year older than me, and I was just 5. But I left school on my 15th birthday !!!
