Are there any other options for a 15 year old other than school? My son is running into all sorts of problems from bad behaviour, bullying and failing GCSEs. Can I take him out and maybe send him to college early or an apprentiship? These problems at school are not new, they have been present since his first day at primary school. He just does not get on with school

Hiya, hope you both doing ok , IMO for some children , 'school isn't just their time to shine ' -very sadly Has your DS's school looked at vocational training for him - alongside his GCSEs , it is possible from Y10 .. What does he like to do / interested in , what is he good at ? Are school supporting him ? It's very hard as a mum / dad , when your DC , don't like school . Hugs flowers

College is available from age 14 but for less able or kids with behavioural issues.
Have you considered interhigh.
