    Probably going to go better if you're honest. You could try something like "this school is so awesome" or "my school is bad at such and such", but honestly they're going to want a reason and the only decent one I can think of is to say what issues you are having with the school.
    I also suggest that if you do move school you look into getting some counselling or something to make sure your problems don't follow you. Once you start getting depressed it has a nasty habbit of keeping on growing even if you get rid of the initial cause.

    I'm sorry I couldn't give a magic word or anything. Good luck with everything.

    That would be one of the stronger reasons.

    Moving schools is a big thing. Do you have one that you would like to move to? How are your studies going?

    If you ask to move they will be suspicious so you need to come up with good reasons. probably :
    You will do better academically there, espeually if you are failing.
    You have friends there.
    its a better sixth form.
    Your current school doesnt each the subjects you want.

    Theres no harm in telling them you are unhappy or that there are issues with the school and youd like to leave, but they may insist you see a Dr or counsellor. I woykdnt move if the problem was bullying.
