Children in Year 9 can apply for a place at a university technical college (UTC) or a studio school​. These schools start at Year 10, so they admit pupils who are 14 to 19 years old.

Merton does not have any schools that start at Year 10 but there are schools nearby that do. We are legally required to publish a list of these schools.
