Hi,

I am currently in Year 11 and in the process of deciding on which college I wish to attend next year. I am very much interested in Loreto Sixth Form College due to its outstanding reputation and facilities; I know that I would be surrounded by people who love to learn as much as I do. However, I would have to take two buses to get there, which would, quite obviously, take a long time.

Is the travel worth it? Or should I just settle for a college that is closer (but has a lower standard)?

Hey I'm thinking about applying to Loreto too but your problem is the same as mine as I would have to take two buses with it taking around an hour to get there. Do you know what time classes would start there?

Hey, so sorry for the late reply; it was mock exam week at our school

I heard that they start at 9am usually, but I am not sure.

it takes me like an hour to get to sixth form, and I don't find it that big of a deal - it's just annoying that you can't go home whenever, and in winter I leave home in the dark and get home in even more darkness

just use the journey to sleep or do last minute homework and you'll probably be fine

Sorry hahaha, that sounded a little strange. It's just that I have heard that they have a bus specifically for Xaverian. Is this true?

They don't have a specific bus no lol. But there are a lot of buses that go straight outside if you know what I mean since its right outside the city centre. Personally I get the 42.

It might be tough in the winter time, but if you are motivated then it is doable. Lots of people near me did that; disregarded the local mediocre 6th form in favour of the excellent one 20 miles away.
