In England, are their colleges equivalent to high school shere? They always say college, but it looks like a high school.
Short answer: Mostly yes. By college they are probably referring to sixth-form college, which is the last two years of voluntary schooling from ages 16 - 18. In England, primary school is ages 4 - 11, then secondary school is ages 11 - 16/18 (you can leave school at 16 if you wish). So our secondary school is not as broken down as you have in America with multiple schools. However, you can leave secondary school at age 16 and go to a sixth-form college for the last two years instead. There will be two years of students in a sixth-form college, taking their A-levels before university (which is what you in America know as college).
Hope that helps.
