At the age of six, boys and girls began to learn skills appropriate to their rank in society.

Petty School- taught reading, writing, and ciphering (basic arithmetic with Arabic numerals)- strongly religious- often run by a young wife who teaches the local children in her home for a small fee- main focus of the school was to get the students into grammar school

Grammar School- lasted 5 to 10 years (usually until the age of 14)- the primary study was Latin grammar- it was rare for a girl to be admitted to a grammar school

Tutors- could provide a child's entire education (espcially for girls and noble children)- might cover subjects not taught in school- often hired to teach dancing and music
