    On paper, yes, you will be at a disadvantage by going back to your old school. However, practically, you are at more of a disadvantage at this school. We're two months in now, and if you're continuously unhappy where you are you're not going to do as well.

    You have to go where you feel most comfortable and happiest, and if that isn't where you are now by this point in the academic year, in all likelihood, it never will be. If this really is the case, your best option is to 'cut your losses' and go elsewhere.

    Finally, think carefully on the decision you're making, but don't procrastinate over it. It's very easy to follow the path of least resistance and stay where you are; to decide not to do anything, and sometimes even to fool yourself into thinking that things can only get better. Don't fall into that trap.

    Best of Luck, whatever course of action you take!

    You don't need school to do extra curricular activities. It is easy to sign up and volunteer at plenty of establishments. As for university, surely if you get the grades (which I'm confident you can based on your GCSEs), you'll be able to get into any uni you choose. Whereas catching up with work may be hard, it's better than torture.
