Many British wizards and witches attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in Scotland. Established around the 10th century, Hogwarts was considered to be one of the finest magical institutions in the wizarding world.

Children with magical abilities were enrolled at birth, and acceptance was confirmed by owl post at age eleven. 

Those who did not wish to attend Hogwarts have the option of home-schooling. Durmstrang Institute also accepted British students if they had wizarding heritage, evident by Draco Malfoy telling people how his parents were originally going to send him there.
