Staying on in school could be an option for you. In some schools students can stay on until they are 19 years old.
Stay on in the same school
If you stay in the same school:
- You know the Teachers and school staff well, and they know you. They can help and support you to prepare for your life after school
- You will carry on with some lessons that you do now but you might be able to try new ones as well
- You might be able to do visits or work tasters to help you think about the future
Move to another school
If you want to move to another school you will need to speak to your:
- Parents / Carers
They can tell you if moving to another school is possible and what must be done for this to happen.
How much will I get paid?
If you are 16-18 years old you may get Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA). This is up to £30 a week.
