A school wishing to set up a new sixth form must first consult and then publish a statutory proposal which is decided by the local school organisation committee or, if they cannot agree unanimously, by a schools adjudicator. The detailed procedures are set out in the Department's guidance for schools on statutory proposals which can be found on the Department's website www.dfes.gov.uk/schoolorg
