Emma Watson is the eldest daughter of divorced English lawyers Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson. She has a younger brother Alexander, who is two years her junior, and is partly French via one of her grandmothers. After their divorce, her biological mother and father have remarried. In 2007, Watson stated that besides Alex, she has her mother's partner has two sons younger than her who "regularly stay with us", and her father and his new wife have made her sister to two-year-old identical twin girls and a three-year-old son. She also added to really like this extended family setup, and besides staying at her mother's place, she still visits her father every two weeks.
After moving to Oxford with mother Jacqueline and brother Alexander, Watson attended The Dragon School, a private preparatory school, until June 2003 and then moved to Headington School, a private all-girls school, also in Oxford. In 2003, she described having "a good time as a teenager" despite all the stardom, and did not have the feeling of having lost her youth. However, she says that sometimes, getting spotted by tourists and being regularly victim of Internet impersonators gets on her nerves once in a while.
While on the film sets, Watson and her similarly young peers were tutored for about four hours of lessons per day, but despite the focus on filming, Watson's academic progress was remarkable. In June 2006, she took GCSE examinations in 10 subjects, achieving eight A* and two A grades.
