It shouldnt be expected you continue into 6th form, it should be that you continue education/training until 18. Many leave schools because they do not want to carry on in formal academic study but want to go do something more vocational or wider than 'traditional' a levels!

In my day you had to pass English Language and Maths O level and have 3 other O levels as a minimum to come back. Indeed you couldn't apply for an UCCA form without English and Maths...OUCH.
However I totally agree that training programmes and apprenticeships are more and more common and at 16 many chose to leave and pursue other paths that are equally rewarding....that actor guy left after O levels and seems to be doing OK!!!
