UPDATE FEBRUARY 2018, FROM SEPTEMBER 2018 THERE WILL BE NO SEPARATE CLASSES FOR HOME EDUCATED YOUNG PEOPLE BUT THE COLLEGE MAY OFFER INFILL PLACES TO Y11. PLEASE CONTACT RACHEL FOR FURTHER INFORMATION
I have received the following message from Rachel Smith Director of Pastoral and Academic Progress at Macclesfield College:
At the moment, home educated young people age 14-16 can join 16+ classes at Macclesfield College on an infill basis for maths and English.
However, if we can recruit a sufficient number of home educated 14-16s we would like to run home ed only classes starting in September 2017.
We are hoping to offer a day a week of Maths and English plus vocational tasters in a variety of subjects. The day currently looks likely to be Friday.
The probability is that we will be offering a 2 year programme and students will begin with functional skills and move onto GCSE work.
Classes and exams would be FREE. Details about Government funding here
If this is something you might be interested in, please contact Rachel as soon as possible

What a shame I have only just come across this post. My daughter is not 14 but I wanted to start looking into next steps/ options as she is 10 and I’m not sure about High school.
If you have any information to share it would be greatly appreciated
To be clear, it is my understanding that they are still offering places, just not on a home ed only course.
They no longer offer any 14-16 provision
