Clarification of 'High School' in the UK

The connection with Studely High School is undoubtedly a big scam.

The term 'High School' came from The Royal High School, in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1505. Scotland’s education system is different from other parts of the UK.

Usage of the term in England and Wales varies. “In some cases, the phrase is used specifically for girls' schools (e.g. Bedford High School, Truro High School for Girls). In certain areas, such as Liverpool (e.g. Alsop High School), Manchester, Cardiff, and Herefordshire, secondary schools are generally called high schools.” The use of the term seems dependent on the way education is organised in each locality. In areas where there is a two-tier schooling system – primary and secondary, the term may not be in use except in the case of public schools, (misnomer as they are generally private fee-paying schools).

Some parts of the country have a three-tier schooling system that include a Middle School and the term 'High School' is used unofficially. “In Northumberland and some areas in Suffolk, Somerset, Staffordshire and Worcestershire there also exists a three-tier education system comprising of First, Middle and High school.” The Isle of Wight uses the term High School to distinguish them from secondary schools that have a different age range.

"Studley High School" is definitely not a High School, but the scammer's place!

And pretend "Studley High School" is definitely not in London; in fact, there are no High Schools at all in England and probably the rest of the UK.
There, they call it differently - perhaps "Grammar School" or "Secondary School" or similar - High Schools exist only in the US and those nations having copied the US school system.

Whenever you receive a mail like that with a pretend High School in the UK, then be advised it most likely comes from a scammer who is out to cheat you; most of them are stupid and do not even know about the differences that exist in the education systems of certain nations!

Now, all you scammers, what you are going to tell us next? What about Extra-terrestial High Schools on planet Mars with a principal called "Alien"?...LOL
