Sixth form starts on Monday and I still have no clue as to which one to go to. I am choosing between a new college which is really big with about 800 students and a sixth form within the college and a sixth form which is part of the high school I attended. This sixth form is very small and has about 100 students per year. Both the sixth forms offer free transport so that's not an issue. I know how the teachers are at the school sixth form and most of the peolle there too. I am not quite fond of some of the people there. At the college sixth form, I have no idea what the teachers are like and hardly know anybody there. Which do I pick?

whichever one you feel most COMFORTABLE in, go for there! I was going to go to my sixth form that's linked with my high school or this sixth form at a grammar school, in the end I chose the one at my sixth form because I felt more comfortable there yk

The pros and cons that I can think of:

Pros of college
- Treated like an adult
- Less risk that a subject will be cancelled due to lack of interest
- Lots of people to mix with
- New and more facilities

Cons of college
- Very big and less personal
- Don't know the people
- Unknown entity



Pros of school sixth form
- Know the people and the teachers
- Small and personal

Cons of school sixth form
- Have to live under school rules
- Don't like all the people
