I'm really not enjoying sixth form and my options, psychology, literature and Sport. Is it too late to leave sixth form and join college and do completely different options?

I would be very surprised if you would be able to find a college to allow you in at this point - but its worth a shot so I guess you could try....good luck

You should really wait until the end of year 12, I don't think colleges would let you in this late now and if they did you'd have insane amounts of work to catch up on

yes you can. I changed my mind about sixth form and looked for other options instead.
you probably won't be able to change colleges this late though
I'd suggest go and have a look at any potential colleges when they advertise their open days, and have a look at a-levels, btecs, apprenticeships etc. also don't forget to consider taster days, facilities & extracurricular the college has.
you can apply etc, and then if you do leave 6th form look for voluntary jobs/part time jobs etc if you do want to leave 6th form

My friend did that, she's loving college so much more. However, I know for certain she isn't an academic, and she was very okay with leaving her academic prospects behind to study something creative. If you're definitely okay with effectively being a year behind then it is possible to move to some colleges mid term. I mean there is the chance to go to college, but usually those who attend sixth form go on to study academic subjects. You can always resit A levels independently if you would rather follow a university route later in life. Definitely do what makes you happy though!
