    They do not need to go back to school you can leave at 15 with parents permision and if you have a job. My son left at 16 hated school and not very academic he's now just going into his last year as a apprentice bricky. The youngest one could go back would go into year 11 depends what he wants to do. I think the older one might be a bit old for school again depend what he wants to do with himself. Your kids will find it a bit diffrent here kids here don't grow up as fast as back there they will be more street wise than most of the kids here.I am heading back to Glasgow in a few weeks myself for a wee holiday,anything you need help with give me a shout.
