You'll definitely be pushed and being surrounded by super smart people will push you to work hard.
I went to a comprehensive secondary school and I'm now at a grammar school doing A Levels. The difference is big but I definitely think my grades wouldn't be as good if I had gone to the sixth form because at the start of year 12, I was the worst in every class, but that only inspired me to work harder so my teachers would stop looking down on me.
Ultimately, if you think you will work just as hard, and your current school isn't bad, you should stay and spend the extra 2 hours you'll have every day revising or something .
Will unis rank you higher if you attended a grammar school sixth form? Watch

Yes I've visited but unfortunately not experienced the teaching as there were only open evenings rather than taster days. Thank you for the advice!
If you wnat the top uni then it might be better to be pushed. You know the schools and we dont. Only writing this to point out nobody can really say because you have the best information and insight when looking at comparing them.
If your aspirations of uni are high, then its not going to do you any harm being pushed.
