18 is the minimum age. It used to be 16 (I believe) but now the argument is that you get paid to go to 6th form if you are poor so there is no excuse to sit on your *rse. Remember that a lot of these 6th form courses are vocational where people learn real practical skills which hopefully lead to employment without going to Uni.
