    I'm currently in Y11 and I've made my mind up to go to sixth-form after I've left school.

    However, I want to earn some cash because I don't want to keep persuading my parents and taking money from them, as they need it for other things.

    Is it possible to get a part-time job whilst in sixth-form, and what type of jobs would this consist of?

    yes it is perfectly possible once you turn 16, most shops will take on someone part time alongside school- I know of people who worked at BHS, Debenhams, Waitrose, WH Smith to name but a few places. Just make sure you don't take on too many hours. There is a whole sub forum here on part time jobs as well which you should have a look at.

    Yes, but only if you have a good time management and do not work for more than 11hrs (most sixth form suggest no more than 12hrs).

    Most people in my sixth form are currently working, in particularly during weekends and one day on the weekdays.

    Definitely get a job if you can. It'll look so much better to companies when you're applying to jobs when they see you've been working from a young age.
