    Hi everyone ,

    I am currently in year 11 and have been at the same school since I was 2 - it is all girls with less than 400 pupils. My school ends at 16 so since forever I was anticipating leaving for year 12. However, a new head has just come in and she has decided to introduce a sixth form this year, and I am unsure of whether to stay or not. My other option is to go to the local grammar school which is mixed. Most of my friends are leaving my current school, but I am unsure of what i should do. My parents want me to leave because they think staying at My current school would be a mistake and they do not trust the fact it is new, but I just don't know. Currently I am very happy but I think this might all change next year and I just don't know and am soooo worried. Also, I am massively into my sport, but the sport at my potential school isn't that good, and I have no idea how good the sport will be at my current school because everything is new. Please help! Thank you so much in advance xx and good luck for exams/university/life!

    The first year after a major change (like starting a sixth form) is always dodgy. I'd move.
