    I've just finished 5 years at an all girls private school and my mum really wants me to go to another all girls for sixth form, and although I have very much enjoyed my time at my current school (which does not have a sixth form) I'm worried that going to another tiny isolated community is going to lead to social isolation from my friends who are all going on to mixed schools.

    well I think it depends on what you want and also what's going to be best for you. Just because you'll be going to an all girls school doesn't necessarily mean you can't be friends with boys outside school? So I think the worry of being socially isolated because you go to an all girls school can be avoided. Plus I think you should be choosing based on which school you think will be best for you and your future. Obviously don't disregard your friends and enjoyment, but don't let it get to you too much.

    It would really just come down to you, and not really what your mum wants (Although she likely just wants what's best for you) I go to a mixed school and couldn't imagine going to a same sex school it would just be a bit weird. If you've managed 5 years so far, maybe another 2 years won't be that bad? Going to a mixed school just for the sake of it and to be the same as your other friends might be something to regret but I dunno.. I'm not you It's hard for someone else to answer what really only you can.

    Good luck regardless!:groovy:
