Secondary schools typically follow on from primary schools and lead into vocational and tertiary education. Attendance is compulsory in most countries for students between the ages of 11 and 16. The organisations, buildings, and terminology are more or less unique in each country. Education designed to support early development in preparation for participation in school and society.

Within the English speaking world, there are three widely used systems to describe the age of the child. The first is the ‘equivalent ages’, then countries that base their education systems on the ‘English model’ use one of two methods to identify the year group, while countries that base their systems on the ‘American K-12 model’ refer to their year groups as ‘grades’. This terminology extends into research literature. School building design does not happen in isolation. Each country will have a different education system and priorities. Schools need to accommodate students, staff, storage, mechanical and electrical systems, storage, support staff, ancillary staff and administration. The number of rooms required can be determined from the predicted roll of the school and the area needed.
The first taxpayer-funded public school in the United States was in Dedham. The building providing the education has to fulfil the needs of: The students, the teachers, the non-teaching support staff, the administrators and the community. It has to meet general government building guidelines, health requirements, minimal functional requirements for classrooms, toilets and showers, electricity and services, preparation and storage of textbooks and basic teaching aids. Government accountants having read the advice then publish minimum guidelines on schools. These enable environmental modelling and establishing building costs. Future design plans are audited to ensure that these standards are met but not exceeded. Government ministries continue to press for the ‘minimum’ space and cost standards to be reduced.
