Sixth form funding is in crisis. Two deep cuts to funding were made after 2010 and the national funding rate (‘the rate’) for 16 and 17 year olds has been frozen at £4,000 per student, per year since 2013. Funding for 18 year olds was cut to just £3,300 per student in 2014. The running costs of schools and colleges have increased sharply since 2010 and the government has imposed a range of new requirements on institutions. This has left much less money for schools and colleges to spend on the front line education of students at a time when the needs of young people have become increasingly complex (for example the sharp rise in students experiencing mental health problems). If you have not already done so please support the Raise the Rate Campaign aimed at influencing government decisions on sixth form funding by signing the petition at https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/230140.
