Switching sixth forms watch

    • Thread Starter

    I was wondering whether I would be able to apply to a sixth form for year 13 separately.
    I dropped out of a scholarship at a private school in Oxford because I hated it. The school wasn't the best and the students were very unwelcoming, I simply wasn't happy there bearing in mind the school was chosen for me as part of a scheme were they match a school to personality therefore i did not have a say in this. I was however very grateful for the opportunity. It was also 6 hours away from home so for a 16 year old it wasn't suitable. As of it being "late" in the year and course no local schools are willing to take me. I want to complete my first year of A levels at home/online with payed courses. Therefore i wanted to apply to year 13 in September as I would have completed my first year already. But would it be possible as there's not much online on this topic?

    Any responses welcome


    If you get good grades in your AS year then i don't see why not, but I would email local sixth forms and ask them just to be sure!
