6th form


My Son is in the process of joining up, just has to wait for the medical to get his join up date. However he will probably be going into the January intake. He has been to his school to sign up for 6th form and they have told him that he has to commit for a year, so he didn't sign up for 6th form. What are we supposed to do with him? By law he has to be in education until he's 18, but the timing of all this is all out.

Get him to sign up for a year of sixth form, then leave when he joins the navy. There's no penalty for him as a student or you as a parent.

Bear in mind that there could be anything up to a years wait before he gets into the RN (depending on which branch he is applying for)
