    Ask them.
    Each school will develop its own policy and while many that are incorporated into a secondary school won't take mature/adult learners most would consider someone of your age. They may well have some of their own existing students who need to repeat year 12.
    If your grades arent good and it is a popular school with high academic standards your chances would be less.
    Only one way to find out. Contact the schools and ask to meet with someone about sixth form entry.

    Some 6th forms allow 18 year olds in year 12 and 19 year olds in year 13 (retook year 12 or year 13)

    Everyone is 16 on entering sixth form, and they turn 17 that year. OP is already 17, so they've been set back a year.

    Isn’t first year of sixth form 16 turning 17, then second year 17 turning 18?

    If they do say no then you need to widen your search to other further education colleges that will accept you.
    You need to get out there and search for the best possible opportunity.
