Raising of the Participation Age
Since the Raising of the participation age came into effect in 2013, all students are required to continue their studies until their 18th birthday. This can include Sixth Form, Further Education College, Apprenticeships or Traineeships. Students will be supported in their decision making through our Careers Programme detailed on the careers section of our website.
