Transcript of Education in England in the 1500s

Education was very uncommon in families that were not wealthy.
Girls were also rarely seen attending school.
If girls got an education it was typically taught at home.
Children would spend their first 3 years of education at a nursery school.
From there they would spend the next 7 years at grammar school.
They had only Sundays off and got 2 weeks of vacation throughout the entire year. One week was at Christmas and one was at Easter.
The school day began at 6 o'clock-7 o'clock in the morning and ended at 5 o'clock.
Other important lessons were writing and reading skills in the English language and behavior studies because they were then thought of as vital components to an Elizabethan education.
Religious teachings in school were also very important.
From birth children were taught the ways of being a good Christian.
When they went off to school those teachings were continued into schools, especially private ones.
Education was very dependent to their social ranking.
