Hello,

Can someone please help me? I don't really know what sixth form to go to.

My reasons for this are because at one of the sixth forms I can't get onto the A levels I really want to, but the college has got outstanding from ofsted (plus my best friend is going there).

The second college allows me to do the A levels I want and is closer to home. The problems are that I won't know anyone there and the college is opening new.

Please will someone advise me what college/sixth form I should pick?

Thanks

The second one. Friends come and go bro, and if he really is your bestfriend, you'll stay in touch. Being able to pick the A Levels that you want is your main priority and plus the college is closer!

I would go with the first choice personally but not because of knowing people.

The new college could turn out to be the worst and so you have poor teachers and support so dont get the grades you want. At least with the first choice you have some security about the teaching quality. Although we all know how teachers change when ofsted comes

If you're not so sure about the quality of the teaching of the second college then check their latest ofsted report (they must have) and compare it to the college ofsted report that your friend is going to. And for the friends issue, like someone said. They come and go and I'm sure you'll meet someone. And if you don't then that's fine..you're not going to college to make friends. You're going there to study for your A-levels which are far more important. Good luck
