    I'm about to begin at a tiny sixth form (there are 25 girls in my year) - what is the reality of a small sixth form?

    In my sixth form there were 70 girls in a year, which I would consider small. I liked it, because I knew everyone pretty well (we were all 7 days boarding!) so I can only assume that would be amplified with your sixth form. The downside is if you don't like someone, even if you don't have lessons with them, you see them EVERYWHERE. However, I wouldn't change my sixth form experience for the world

    I'm at a small college, and I think it's brilliant. Although their are probably around 70 people in my year, after about 3 months I knew the names of them all and I'd conversations with the majority of them. Because you will get to know everyone quickly it makes settling in, a far quicker and easier process and if people don't get on it tends to be sorted really quickly.
    The only downside I would say is that everyone knows your business if you hook up with someone at a party etc. ahahah!!
