reasons to stay in my academy sixth form after gcse's Watch

    • Thread Starter

    i have started looking for sixth forms and colleges to go to next year and have a few in mind butmany are telling me to stay in my academy and finish a levels there but nobody has told me a better reason than its just easier. i want to meet new people but i was wondering is there any reasons to stay? i like most of the teachers in my school but im worried that i am too comfortable here and that i need to go out and explore new schools and meet new people. does anyone have any reasons i should stay or if i should leave? also are there more opportunities to meet new people instead of moving schools?

    If you want to meet more people without moving schools then you could consider taking up and extracurricular activity/sport/join a group.

    With regards to your main question, I was in exactly the same situation. I decided to move from my school to a college and it was a great decision for me because I was able to develop myself as a person by putting myself into a new environment. It was difficult at first because I had to make friends with people who were already comfortable with the people they were with, but it all worked out. I loved my school and at heart I still belonged in it but I was too complacent and sheltered there. In the end, what you need to do is evaluate (for yourself, without any input from friends) what is really the best decision for you.
