I have attended my school since Year 7, and have finally decided to leave after Year 11. They have a sixth form, but I don't think it is as good as the one that I will be moving to.
I need to tell them that I have declined their offer for their sixth form, but just don't know how to without sounding rude. Before I got my GCSE results, I accepted their offer, just in case I didn't get the grades I would need to get into the other sixth form at my new school, so how do I go about declining their offer after accepting it previously?
Thanks for helping
Please help? I need to write a letter/ email to my current school Watch

You don't have to worry about coming across as rude, it's normal to hold places in multiple centres.
I personally hold places in two and will be enrolling at both. I've spoken to teachers at both places and they have no issue with it as long as I'm still not messing around after the first two weeks or so.
Just write that you've decided to try something new, that your education will be better elsewhere, that it's time to move on, that you feel the best place for you is elsewhere, whatever. It's fine just as long as you don't write "PS you all stink" or something equally daft.

Just be polite! They will be fine with it, they will have a lot of students going there already so I'm sure they won't mind.
Just explain that you have chosen to go elsewhere after receiving your exam results. I would just word it something like this.
After receiving my exam results I have decided that I will no longer be requiring a place at your sixth form.
-add whatever else here-
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you and best wishes,
Sorry if that's a bit brief!

You don't need to explain your decision to them. Something simple and to the point will do. It's ok to sound cheesy.
After much consideration I have decided to decline the offer of a place at [current] Sixth Form. I have enjoyed my time at [current school] and feel it has provided an excellent foundation upon which to tackle my next challenge in life.
