Xaverian or Loreto? For people in Manchester/near ManchesterWatch
I have an offer for Loreto but will most likely be attending my school's sixth form instead.
So i have this option to go to either Loreto or Xaverian college, but i don't know which one to pick? I was wondering if anyone could help me decide which college to pick? In terms of what exams boards they pick for biology, chemistry and business and also the colleges in general
Neither are great IMO.
However its not even about the college, go where you feel more comfortable and where its easier for you to commute to.
End of the day the college itself has very little impact on the grades you will receive at the end of the two years. Alevels are more about self teaching than anything else.

Im going to either loreto or Stretford grammar sixth form (which i have heard almost nothing about). Most of the people from my school are going to either loreto, xaverian or Manchester college but the majority are going to loreto since its the most popular and its one of the best colleges in manchester'. xavarian is a smaller college and theres less people
I've been in Stretford Grammar for a very long time and I think you will find it a better option than any large sixth form college. It depends on the type of student you are but a small sixth form is often a lot better in terms of delivering education than large colleges where most students are thinking more about where they're going for lunch than anything else.
I havent logged on to tsr in ages so i just saw this now lol. im going to stretford (obviously if i get the results) but i cant go to the induction day since im busy that day. I went to whalley range and we have a sixth form there so i kinda know what to expect in terms of how big it is and how many people there are etc but i think people would be thinking about where they wanna go out to in any college lol
Yes I agree with your final point, but there overall seems to be a much more focused atmosphere in grammar school sixth forms than large colleges. Of course, it can still be said that performance at A level is more dependent on the student than the college.
I went to Xaverian and if you take advantage of what's there and the teaching it's a good place! I got a hell of a lot of value added from my GCSE's when I went there. However I didn't do the subjects you want to do.
I juat got my enrolment papers from loreto and they seem really strict is the dress code strict aswell or????
Stretford has a formal dress code so is a lot stricter in that respect.
