this is what Secondary School classes are like
Ages range from 11-18 (Years 7-13). Most students leave after their GCSE's in Year 11 to go to college or start working, others stay on in school and do the more harder A-Levels in Sixth Form (Year 12/13), which most then go onto university.
Usually grades 9-12, or 8-12, 7-12, etc. sometimes too.
The equivalent of high school in the USA, secondary school is under-funded and under-staffed. Buying lunch is optional, and most people are forced to eat outside in all weather conditions because the cafeteria has around 10 tables. It's all catered but is very expensive to buy and not healthy at all. No uniforms or dress code unless people start dressing really risqué, and even then, there's probably no funding to make the uniforms so everyone just wears what they want. The teachers are nice on their good days and terrible on every other day but constantly hint at their small pay-cheques. Our electronics constantly get stolen and we have to get the RCMP in there nearly every day to arrest somebody. No homework because the teachers are too underfunded to get toner for the copier, and you usually end up sharing four to a textbook. It's terrible, really. The only thing we do is watch YouTube videos on the projectors.
Student 1: "Today we had to do a science experiment with a voltmeter but the thing didn't work so we had to sit and watch it done on YouTube."
Student 2: "What do you want, that's secondary school for ya."
