A secondary modern school was a type of secondary school in the United Kingdom in the 20th century. Secondary modern schools, as opposed to grammar schools, allowed in both boys and girls, and required no uniform. Students were referred to by their first names, and science was taught "all lumped together" in one course. Students were expected to leave at age 16 to pursue jobs of their own.
