Hi I've been an avid writer basically since I started primary school and I have a story which I've been working for a couple of years now and is almost finished. I was wondering how I could get it published and how the system works?

You send a query letter to a literary agent, preferably one who openly welcomes speculative submissions.
Query letters are normally of a very specific format and you should research this area before submitting anything. You should also check the literary agents guidelines for submission.
I would wait until you have a finished novel before thinking about submitting it though. Saying that the novel is unfinished could be just enough to make an agent or publisher throw the letter away.
