    Hi, so I moved from Northern Ireland to England at Christmas.
    I had started lower sixth in Northern Ireland this year and the problem is that schools anywhere near my area don't want to accept me because i was doing a Northern Irish board and would have to move or they don't offer the subjects I began taking and some even say that for me to get in to the school I would have to wait until next september to start.
    No school anywhere near me does classical civilation and the only one that does, studies a differnt book and differnt topics than I was and say its too late to catch up.
    Some schools are catholic and because I am not baptized thay won't accept me.
    I have tried schools that would take two hours to get every morning.
    I am basically screwed, anyone got any ideas of what else I could try?
    Thanks in advance

    Your local authority should be able to help you find a suitable school or college (a larger sixth form college will probably be a better bet).

    Catholic schools aren't allowed to discriminate based on religion for admission.
