College/Sixth form - which is better? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Desperately want to be independent and meet new people, but don't know if staying at school would be better with it being only two years.

    Whichever you did, do you enjoy/regret it? Why? What would your advice be in choosing?
    Thank you!

    I went to a sixth form college to do my A-Levels. I regret some of it (the academic drive is just...not there for most people, and I've had some real mix ups with teaching), but I did get a chance to start fresh (I'm trans + I'd had real friendship troubles at my secondary school) and I got to take subjects I wouldn't have been able to take at my school.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
