Education will now end at 18[edit]

This page should show that education in secondary schools in England will now be compulsory to the age of 18, no longer 16 89.243.245.49 17:11, 25 February 2007 (UTC)


Merge[edit]

This should be merged with sixth form;otherwise the latter seems a bit redundant. --Catchthedream 21:54, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

  • No it should not —Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.149.8.201 (talkcontribs)
  • It certainly should. I see no reason why not.--TDE 13:02, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • I disagree — sixth form provides an overview of the concept of sixth form education. This article is more specific, and talks about colleges (just one means by which sixth form education is taught). I think the topic of sixth form colleges has significantly more scope for expansion, and this would not belong in an article on the sixth form in general. UkPaolo/talk 14:22, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Not merged. The articles are related but cover different things. KayEss | talk 04:51, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

I see your point UkPaolo. There are indeed many other ways and the sixth form college article does not include sixth-forms at secondary schools. --TDE 19:43, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Sixth form colleges are colleges where there is only a Sixth Form (or post-16) education offered. Many, many schools have Sixth forms as well as providing education to younger children. These should not be merged but linked. Robertsteadman 08:44, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. I went to two of the latter. jazzle 09:51, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Where do we put in sixth form schools like William Morris Sixth Form or Crossways Academy in :London ( that is, 16-19 schools only consisting of a sixth form but not incorporated as colleges) Zagubov (talk) 18:16, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

from 16 to 18[edit]

'In England and Wales, education is only compulsory until the end of year 11, the school year in which the pupil turns 16 (although this is changing in September 2013)[1].' This is only partially correct, as in Wales the age will remain 16 as stated by the Welsh Assembly Government. The school leaving age is only to change in England. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.11.223.222 (talk) 15:51, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Would someone please clarify exactly how the school leaving age will change in England in 2013? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.142.62.133 (talk) 02:06, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
