Compulsory education lasts for ten years and covers pre-primary education, primary education, grades one to six and lower secondary education in the gymnasium, grades seven to nine. Students are accepted at the pre-primary school at the age of four years and eight months. At the end of the gymnasium, they receive a certificate. Most students in primary and secondary education (87,5% in 2008/2009, according to the
Statistical Service of Cyprus) attend public-sector schools, which are set up and funded by the government. The rest attend private-sector schools, which are mainly self-funded.
