    My school is absolutely terrible and the cause of my difficulties. So, how do I convince my parents to move schools without mentioning everything? Any ideas? I'm really struggling to think.

    Honestly the only way I can think of is to tell them the truth, or at least a part of it. Tell them how unhappy it's making you and how you think you might do better somewhere else, and with a fresh start. Play to their morals/beliefs/whatever they care about most (grades or whatever) as this could help! Also look at other schools in your area and pick which one you and they might think is best that might realistically take you, and use this is a start point. I would honestly try and avoid making things up though as this helps no-one and it's likely to come back and hurt you afterwards anyway. Whatever you do, good luck! Going to move this to friends family and work too, hopefully you'll get some better replies there
