The law says your parents or carers have to make sure you get an education until you are 16.

After you turn 16, you have a right to stay on at school if you want to.


If you decide to leave school at 16, talk to your teachers about when you could do this. It will depend on when your birthday is.

Remember that even if school isn’t right for you, there are other places you can go to learn, like colleges.
