Got a question about secondary schools?


This is the place to ask for help and advice on secondary schools in your area or get info on education for 11-18 year olds like GCSEs and Attainment 8.


If I want to pull my child out of an independent school, is our local state secondary obliged to take him, even if he is well past the main intake age of 11+?


Good question! All children are entitled to a state education but the school is not obliged to take your child if they do not have spaces.

Anyone have any experience of this?
