Updating a 1970 s contemporary house

Prior to 1944 the British secondary education system was fundamentally an ad hoc creation.Access was not universally available, and varied greatly by region.It was also assumed that students with different abilities were suited to different curricula.

Calling their creation the Tripartite System, education officials envisaged a radical technocratic system in which skill was the major factor in deciding access to education, rather than financial resources.Before this point there had been no formal demarcation between primary and secondary education as known in modern society.The novelty of this break would encourage the establishment of selection at the point when pupils were changing schools.For the first time, secondary education was to become a right, and was to be universally provided.It would also be free, with financial assistance for poor students.
