Q: When can my daughter or son leave school?
A. The official school leaving date is the last Friday of June of the school year in which they turn 16.
Also, did you know that the government has increased the age that students must continue in learning?
This means that Year 11 students must be in some form of learning until they are 18 years old.
This doesn't mean they have to stay on their school or go to a college; they can choose from the following:
- Full-time study in a school, college or with a training provider.
- Full-time work (including working in a family business) or volunteering combined with part-time education/training.
- An apprenticeship.
For more information go to the government website.
