    I'm French, and I'm 17.
    I'm going to Manchester soon, (the next month!?).
    I'm in "Premiere" level in France, 11th in UK. I have the GCSE equivalent ("Brevet des colleges") . I'm going to live in Bury , Manchester, i don't know anything about english school system, and I dont know if I can register to a school during the year?

    Do you know any schools,college,university (?) in Bury, or Manchester where maybe i can go?

    Thanks !!!

    (Sorry for my english.. )

    Being 17 and having GCSE equivalents you will need to go to a College/Sixth Form.

    The academic year starts in septemeber but some places may let you join a little bit late.

    After a quick google i found this: http://www.burycollege.ac.uk/

    Thanks Rhiani-ani-on !

    So, I have spoken with some College in Bury: BuryCollege, HopWood Hall, and two more and I explained them my situation.
    But the year started in september and they can't receive me now, and they said: Oh, you need to go next year (september).. :P

    So.. I'm lost.. ahah.. i can find a job i'm pretty sure. But I can't find a school? I dont know anything about english education, and i dont know what can i do ?!
    I'm not leaving to Manchester if I can't find a school... :/

    Can you help me? Or do you know others things what I can do ? (Schools etc.)

    Thanks so much!
