    The high school i currently go to is a faith school and i belong to this faith. However though i have done well in terms of GCSEs i feel as if i must go to a different 6th form for Alevels, i want to stay at my current school because of the surroundings and also my friends want me to stay? but my maths tutor tells me he has seen the education given at the school i go to and i should look elsewhere. I have received offers from two other 6th forms, should i stay or go? does it matter if none of my friends are going to the 6th form i go to?

    I changed 6th forms to go to a better one, and made more friends that I have more in common with then at the school I was at before. If you live near yor friends and your happy to move go for it

    It is a choice that only you can make. You have to think about where you are going to be happiest and where you think that you can achieve the best you can. At any 6th form there are going to be people from different places so there will be many people who know nobody and therefore need to make friends. But if you think you are going to be happier staying with your friends at your current school then maybe this is the best choice. If you did stay on at your current school it might lead to you having to do lots of extra work out of lessons so as to get up to a standard you are happier with so there may need to be more self-teaching if you stayed at the same school than if you went to another one which might have better teaching standards. Either way good luck with whatever choice you do decide to make!!

    You'll make new friends, easy.

    When considering something as important as your education, you can't be having to consider your friends missing you. They'll understand if they're good pals, and it's not like you can never see each other ever again if you change schools.

    Well you do have to decide where you are going to be happiest. But there will be loads of people who go to a different 6th form and don't know anyone so there will be many people to make new friends with. So I wouldn't automatically decide not to go to a new 6th form because of your friends as you can make new ones, but you have to be happy where you go otherwise it might drag on a bit.

    I agree. You can still keep your friends from your current school, but at the new 6th form you will make new friends as well.
    It might also be good to have a change. Im assuming you have been at your current school for all of your secondary school life. It might be good to have a change rather than staying where you are.

    I am leaving my current school to go to one nearby for a levels. This school has better facilities and seemed very switched on. I think at this point, I needed a change. Question, are there better options (subjects), facilities and grades of current students there? If so, then I would recommend considering this very seriously. I personally felt the need to move schools, because I wanted a change and the new school suited me better. I think you should look round the new 6th forms and decide what YOU want.
