    This is similar to a post I did a couple months ago, but I've cut down all of the other choices I have and have settled on; Orpington College or SFH6 (My school's sixth form). Both have a good reputation as well as offering the subjects I want to study. Their both a reasonable distance from my house as well.

    I happen to be quite independent in certain aspects, but I'm also very social and totally up to facing new experiences. ...this is the bridging part occurring before I attend university and I want it to be a really enjoyable two years....so what would you say from personal/friends/family experiences; A-level College/College vs Sixth Form??

    I would recommend going to a college as opposed to a sixth form. This is because a college contains more people, is more diverse and usually turn out to be more fun in my experience. This would suit your personality, as you mentioned that you are a sociable person and open to different experiences.

    The advantage that sixth forms have is that they offer more support to their students, due to a limited number of students and possibly other factors. Having said that, colleges also offer a substitutional amount of support but not the extent that sixth forms do.

    I believe that studying your A-Levels at a college rather than a sixth form would prepare you better for the future. Also, you mentioned that you are quite an independent person, so a college is a suitable for you because you would be able to cope with the workload by yourself.

    Good luck with starting AS.
