    So basically, on the 25th I will receive my GCSE results, but I intend to move to the local grammar school as my subjects aren't being offered at my school. I have known and intended to move for some time, but I didn't inform my head of year because I was rather afraid she would try persuade me to stay and I just couldn't be bothered with the stress during an already stressful exam session.

    What on earth do I say when I see her when I collect my results on Thursday...

    You tell her exactly what you are doing and if she doesn't like it then it doesn't matter! At this stage in your life it is what you want out of your education that matters from now on, not what someone else thinks.

    This sounds horrible, but I speak from experience- you need to learn be more selfish! I used to be like you too, tethered by others thoughts and opinions but they don't matter the only opinion that matters is yours! You do what you wanna do and don't worry about anyone else so long as it isn't illegal- simple.

    It doesnt matter, youre never going to see her again so.. Just tell her that its what you want to do and what you think is best. Its your life. Surely she'll understand

    You shouldn't feel pressured to stay where you are at all. You clearly know what you want for your future and know how to get it. Take that confidence and drive and speak to her like an adult and be truthful. Explain that you want to take particular subjects that are not offered where you are and you're moving on.

    If you feel like you'll struggle to get it out or your point across, you could always write your reasons for leaving in a letter, ask if you can sit down with her to discuss, hand her the letter to read and then you can discuss your letter afterwards.

    I get how you feel as our head of year is asking me to stay but i am not going to since i have gotten into my favourite college, all you need to do is just say to her that you have found a place that caters to your needs, if the subjects you want aren't being offered at the school she should be able to understand, plus it's her job to make you stay you shouldn't stay in order to please her IT'S YOUR EDUCATION!

    She's understand if the subjects simply aren't offered. It's not your fault at all you aren't choosing somewhere better; you are choosing somewhere which offers what you want

    It honestly fazes me how topics like this exist... Do you not have any common sense? You want to move schools, you move, it's not your teachers concern.
