The BNP will ensure that all children are provided with the opportunity to realise their potential. We oppose the ‘trendy’ egalitarian teaching methods that have made Britain one of the most poorly educated nations in Europe.

We will:

  • Introduce selection at age 14 in order to offer an academic route (similar to grammar schools) or a technical one with parity of esteem
  • Reintroduce emphasis on the ‘Three Rs’, especially at elementary level and return to the system of learning by phonetics
  • Phase out GCSEs over a ten-year period
  • Create a four-term school year ending in April
  • Reduce the length of the summer holidays
  • Bring back assisted places for gifted students
  • Abolish student tuition fees
  • Restore authority to teachers and headteachers
  • Instil in our young people knowledge and pride of British history, traditions, identity and origins and scrap the compulsory study of all other cultures
