    Hi all....

    I'm looking to go back to college at age 20. I know it sounds absolutely ridiculous, but I'm thinking of doing some different subjects (science ones) then what I previously did...and was wondering if there are any sixth form colleges in london that accept students age 20 (even though I would be 21 for entry in september 2017). Im not looking to attend an FE college, and would prefer a well established sixth form that has bred many oxbridge students etc, but i also understand that many of these colleges dont allow such old students (like westminster) so im feeling very limited right now and help would be appreciated

    Well I know Franklin College in Grimsby had a few students in their 20s, but that's like 200 miles away from London.
