Poetry is a required part of the curriculum of Students of all ages. Learning and reciting poetry is not a major part of the curriculum, instead students learn to read, understand, respond and analyse poetry. They are also taught to write their own poetry, though this is not formally assessed in UK schools.
Recitation is taught as part of Drama and Performance, and there is an organisation called LAMDA that offers graded tests in poetry recitation.
If you enjoy reading poetry, go for it! But remember that poetry isn't like prose. Poets sometimes bend the rules of grammar, and sometimes break them.
