    Why do you want to change school? Since you're going into year 11, it's probably the worst time to change since you're halfway through your GCSE content and the exam boards could be different at other schools. If you persevere for another year, you will be more successful and can go to a college of your choice.

    I don't think you'll find one that will accept you half way through your GCSEs. It's normally best to move in year 10 but I don't know. Anyway the normal procedure is to apply to the secondary school you want to move to. You could ring and ask them for info. Then your current school usually has a meeting with you. I wouldn't recommend moving though at this point when you are about to go in year 11 unless your school is shockingly bad and you think you'll do worse staying but you can check if it is possible. But exam boards and everything are probably going to be different too so it's most likely not a good idea

    Local authority school - principle factor is work out which ones you can go to. You will have a limited number of schools in your area you can attend and you need to be in their catchment area. Then your parents have to contact them to ask if they have a space for you. If they do, then the school will advise on how to transfer via the Local Education Authority's process. Decent schools are unlikely to have spare spaces.

    Public, independent and private schools will each have their own entry process, usually with an entry exam that you should have taken last year for a start this September.
