Are you allowed to smoke at your school/sixth form college?

    No. You are quite correct, Westminster legislation makes it law. Not me saying it on TSR. I can't quote the law exactly, but it is illegal to smoke on the premises of school sites. Smoking outside of the premises is not illegal, even two inches outside.

    There is little point is saying what your question is when it should be in the title. I'm glad you prefer my version. But fundamentally, the question is your thread title: it governs the topic of discussion. Fortunately, this one had a simple solution. If you wish to receive more accurate responses, I suggest you create another thread with a more accurate title to what you want to know.

    God day.
    Good Day!

    Let's move on shall we, it's not really important! :grin:

    I don't really think that is necessary, it was only meant to be a quick question and the people that have responded to the question seemed to be able to interpret what I meant by the question and I've got a good idea of what happens at other schools/sixth forms. Thanks for the tip though

    yeah we have a designated smoking area but we get expelled if we smoke outside it. i go to a college so it's allowed bc there are only 16-19 year olds there

    My school has a zero tolerance policy towards smoking, however sixth formers (16/17/18 year olds) are allowed to go to town at lunch so as long as it's off-premises, by law they can.
