Sixth forms (Special Educational Needs)

In some schools young people can stay on and continue learning until they are 19 years old.

This can give young people more time to decide what they want to do next. This decision should be made in consultation with the young person, their parent / carer and the school.

For more information about entry requirements and the courses and qualifications on offer, please contact the individual schools directly.
