How can I change sixth forms?

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I just started year 12 in September and everything is going wrong. I hate the teaching of the two subjects I'm doing that I do enjoy, and also I'm stuck in a third subject that they're literally saying is impossible for me to change that I hate and am terrible at to the point that I know I'm going to fail if I have to continue. I'm not sure what my options are but I can't stay in this place, it's the environment, teaching and everything. Is my only option to drop out and start a new sixth form next year (as in start in first year and be older than everyone) or is there something else I can do? Please help, thanks

    Just talk to the leadership team>

    I know a guy that moved between like 3 different schools within one year in lower sixth, but saying that he did have the advantage of being an Italian that needed to learn English so was going to have to retake lower sixth anyway.

    The principle might be similar though, find somewhere else you want to go to, talk to them, and then talk to who's in charge of where you are at the moment.
