Coeducation
MIXED-SEX EDUCATION, also known as MIXED-GENDER EDUCATION, CO-EDUCATION or COEDUCATION (abbreviated to CO-ED or COED), is a system of education where males and females are educated together. Whereas single-sex education was more common up to the 19th century, mixed-sex has since become standard in many cultures, particularly in Western countries. Single-sex education, however, remains prevalent in many Muslim countries. The relative merits of both systems have been the subject of debate. The world's oldest co-educational day and boarding school is Dollar Academy , a junior and senior school for males and females from ages 5 to 18 in Scotland, United Kingdom. From its opening in 1818 the school admitted both boys and girls of the parish of Dollar and the surrounding area. The school continues in existence to the present day with around 1,250 pupils. The first co-educational college to be founded was Oberlin Collegiate Institute in Oberlin, Ohio. It opened on December 3, 1833, with 44 students, including 29 men and 15 women. Fully equal status for women did not arrive until 1837, and the first three women to graduate with bachelor's degrees did so in 1840. By the late 20th century, many institutions of higher learning that had been exclusively for people of one sex had become coeducational

Sixth Form
In the education systems of England , Northern Ireland , Wales and some other Commonwealth countries, SIXTH FORM (sometimes referred to as Key Stage 5 ) represents the final 1-3 years of secondary education (high school), where students (typically between 16 and 18 years of age) prepare for their A-level (or equivalent) examinations. CONTENTS * 1 England and Wales * 2 Northern Ireland * 3 Scotland * 4 Other countries * 5 See also * 6 Notes ENGLAND AND WALESThe term _sixth form_ describes the school years numbered 12 and 13, which are called the _Lower Sixth_ (L6) and _Upper Sixth_ (U6) by many schools. The term survives from an earlier system when the first five years of English secondary schooling were known as _forms_ (which would originally have been long backless benches on which rows of pupils sat in the classroom). Pupils started their first year of secondary school in the _first form_ or first year , and this was the academic year in which pupils would normally become 12 years of age. Pupils would move up a form each year before entering the fifth form in the academic year in which they would have their sixteenth birthday. Those who stayed on at school to study for A-levels moved up into the sixth form, which was divided into the Lower Sixth and the Upper Sixth

England
ENGLAND is a country that is part of the United Kingdom . It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west. The Irish Sea lies northwest of England and the Celtic Sea lies to the southwest. England is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south. The country covers five-eighths of the island of Great Britain (which lies in the North Atlantic ) in its centre and south; and includes over 100 smaller islands such as the Isles of Scilly , and the Isle of Wight . The area now called England was first inhabited by modern humans during the Upper Palaeolithic period, but takes its name from the Angles , one of the Germanic tribes who settled during the 5th and 6th centuries. England became a unified state in the 10th century, and since the Age of Discovery , which began during the 15th century, has had a significant cultural and legal impact on the wider world. The English language , the Anglican Church , and English law – the basis for the common law legal systems of many other countries around the world – developed in England, and the country's parliamentary system of government has been widely adopted by other nations

Sussex
SUSSEX (/ˈsʌsᵻks/ ), from the Old English _Sūþsēaxe_ (South Saxons ), is a historic county in South East England corresponding roughly in area to the ancient Kingdom of Sussex . It is bounded to the west by Hampshire , north by Surrey , north-east by Kent , south by the English Channel , and divided for many purposes into the ceremonial counties of West Sussex and East Sussex . Brighton and Hove , though part of East Sussex, was made a unitary authority in 1997, and as such, is administered independently of the rest of East Sussex. Brighton and Hove was granted City status in 2000. Until then, Chichester was Sussex's only city. Sussex has three main geographic sub-regions, each oriented approximately east to west. In the south-west is the fertile and densely populated coastal plain . North of this are the rolling chalk hills of the South Downs , beyond which is the well-wooded Sussex Weald . The name derives from the Kingdom of Sussex , which was founded, according to legend, by Ælle of Sussex in AD 477. In 825, it was absorbed into the kingdom of Wessex and subsequently into the kingdom of England
