    I'd say QE is good for independence/actually being treated like an adult, but people I know who go there say it's p impersonal and you can't really get much individualised help because there's so many people. On the other hand there's better facilities especially for art subjects

    Take a look at this: https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...-league-tables

    The last column shows you which schools are a level colleges - as you can see Leicester grammar has the besst points score so if you're not restricted to state schools then it'll probably be that

    If you can branch out into the county there are loads more like beauchamp etc but honestly the best place to work out where to apply is by going to open days and stuff

    I'm on the same phase as well so applied to QE / Beachamp but QE seems convenient for me so most likely will go there.A levels MATHEMATICS,GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS,ECONOMICS,MATHEMATICS,H ISTORY AS.EPQ

    Beachamp has outstanding ofsted rating/ good results/ better teaching/personality wise better students/school with sixth form so not sure if you will get full college experience/mostly oatby locals

    QE is slightly turn off due to :dolphin::dolphin::dolphin::dolphin: teaching/ but reputation wise great/more likely to go to oxbridge or russel group unis/ nice campus/ larger so better social life/ more independence/ slightly competitive environment which is plus point for me/ cool kids to not-so-cool-kids you get more variety there/livelier environment in my opinion/ clever students or ppl from other college think they are dont know yet/ plus you get me

    Gateway/Regent out of league if you are a TSR enthusiast who is keen about studies and all but teaching at regent really good but you might die virgin as not-so-hot-boys:way hotter girls ratio is extremely high.Gateway is a disaster atm

    .Leicester Grammar/Leicester high school for girls* is good if you are rich/ super clever /lesbian*
    .Lough borough college is faaaarrrrrrr offff from Leicester town.

    I am technically only one hopefully going to QE this summer from my school and you what I mean so it will me nice to know you.AMA if wanna know more,

    How about Leicester Grammar School? Or Harrow School (Eton Tier Independent School)- They are relatively easy to attend, given scholarship acceptance. I was lucky to be offered by both.....
