I'd say go for it - travelling for three hours to and from a sixth form that it doesn't sound like you're entirely happy at seems like quite a sacrifice!(Original post by Jack Dolan)
[Background] I finished my GCSE's in May of this year at one of my local schools, I loved every minute, got Head Boy, got 11 A*'s in my GCSE's, and was generally friends with everyone
Anyway we didn't have a sixth form so...
I began my AS's this September at a grammar school which is about 20 miles away, which means I have 3 hours on the bus each day, and I leave for school at 7.15 and get back at 5.40.
It's all boys and it's strict and I don't feel I stand out much, also I only have a couple of friends who have come to the grammar school with me, although I've made a fair few friends and feel settled in. The boys there are very different to my old friends though, not really very socially active :/.
I am thinking of changing to a local sixth form after xmas and studying the same 5 A-levels there, but will on the upside have much shorter days and be with my friends.
But I'm not 100% decided, do you think this is a wide decision? Would I regret it?
If anyone has been in a similar situation or feels they could offer me their general advice or thoughts that would be very greatly appreciated.
This is a conundrum.
Thanks so much,

I'm at grammar school. And I'm quite far above average. But then I'm a smug ****

Thanks Gabby , yeah I'm seriously thinking about it now.
Planar, a lot of people are above average..50% in fact . What do you think of grammar? Have you been there since year 7?
