I wanted to ask if anyone has any experience of either Long Road or Hills Road Sixth Form Colleges in Cambridge. I've been offered provisional places at both but am unsure which to choose - I liked the academic environment at Hills but the social atmosphere at Long, and for English Literature Long Road are studying one of my favourite books. I know how popular Hills is and the reputation it has but I really want to enjoy all aspects of my two years at Sixth Form. Any advice?

None of us can make that decision for you.. but I can offer you my two pennies.

I go to a pretty damn academic sixth form - no matter what the sixth form people still have parties (albeit less in more academic schools) and you make friends there too. In my opinion, sixth form is only 2 years of your life but can make a HUGE difference - I'd personally pick hills as at the end of the day would you rather attend a few more parties during your teens or get into the uni of your dreams?
