    I'm 16 and on my first year of A Levels, I feel so depressed and isolated because of school- I always have done.
    Recently I've thought of doing an apprenticeship in travel or retail as a little break from education because I really cannot cope anymore.
    I'd like to return to a college sixth form in September following the apprenticeship.
    I really can't stay in school any longer, I'm bullied and I have no friends, I am unable to move schools so I thought this would be a good idea.
    All I want to do now is work, I want to fulfil my aspiration as being a solicitor but I think a year off is what I require.

    Fight them(alpha)/tell a teacher. what u need is a change in lifestyle at college-that's why ur sad. you can get a part-time job if u wanna work(easier said than done)-you'll make some friends there also.
    it seems obvious to me that staying in college is best for you as you want to be a solicitor-don't let some bullies make u change

    ^ As the above poster said. I know having no friends and being bullied is tough, but there are people (in and out of the school) you can talk to about it. If you want to be a solicitor, throw yourself into your A-Levels. Stand up to the bullies simply by making something you want of your life. Commit to your studies, and education will become bearable and lead you to where you want to go.

    Alternatively, taking a year out may be a valid option. If it's what you really want to do, look into it. But, bear in mind, you may not return to your studies if you do. If sixth form is giving you depression, you won't want to voluntarily endure it once you've got a job.
