That figure of 20-30 pupils who would attend is rubbish. I know that all 22 members of my childs form were planning on using the Sixth Form and thats just one class in year 11 alone. They didn't consult early enough and teachers were telling the kids to apply for colleges before the consultation even started. Smoke and mirrors. Nothing more.
