I left school at 12 due to bereavement/bullying reasons....I’m now nearly 17 and want to study to become a mid-wife.
I don’t know where to start in terms of GCSEs should I speak to my local college or schools? or try a home course?
I’d prefer to be in an educational environment rather than home study.
I’m in the Dorset area if that helps.

many colleges offer GCSE courses! i recommend going there. some sixth-form colleges do too, so you can study with people around your age

College 100%. I did home learning for GCSEs in my mid 20s and it's really hard when your knowledge is limited. As far as I'm aware your local college should offer English and Maths GCSEs for free if you don't already have a C or better. It would be advisable to do Science too as you'd struggle going into an A level or equivalent with no experience. My local college does Science GCSE for £400 which is loads cheaper than home learning and you'll get better teaching.
