The Government refunds the Value Added Tax (VAT) costs of schools and academies but not Sixth Form Colleges - this leaves the average Sixth Form College with £335,000 less to spend on the education of students each year. The imposition of VAT on Sixth Form Colleges is a tax on learning that redirects funding away from the front line education of young people.

Please click here to sign the petition calling on the Government to drop the learning tax.
