I dont think you're legally obliged to attend after you turn 16.
I don't think so, however depends if said persons parents are still getting child benefit as they can only get that if still in education.
no you are not legally obliged to attend..........just ask my eldest who didnt bother going much at all from November, we didnt find out till the following April at his parents evening!
DG.......are you considering trying to get in for Jailbait????
It is not a legal requirement, and is a choice to attend as you normally would apply to join a 6th form.
Okay thanks. i thought the age length for education/school was getting increased to 18. Wasnt sure.
Sy, im not no lol.. but this info may come in handy one day

Bitsy that's the sign of a crappy one though. You don't legally have to … Bitsy that's the sign of a crappy one though. You don't legally have to go but decent ones will require it and notify home etc.



yep, really crappy, thats why neither of my other boys will be attending it. They sell you the dream of how wonderful it is then once you have signed up and they have the funding they arnt bothered if you attend or not!

Not true, funding is based MLP (minimum levels of performance) ie success rates etc. It is very much in the college's interest for the student to stay. Of course sixth forms could be funded completely differently

Op - you don't have to go, but most will say if attendance drops below a certain level then you may be asked to leave

i left years ago mate. hated it really.. didnt get taught alot.
In my one, miss for than 3 weeks and you are kicked out, unless you have a valid reason. But our sixth form is rubish. Most people from last year are retaking year 12. Our sixth form is so poor. We dont have even have proper teachers for the subject. For one of my subjects we had a teacher learning with us lol.

I believe they are and it is school 6th form that the op and I were referring to, not college.
