    I applied to go here but is it a good sixth form? I know school hours are long and you attend on Saturday. Is it worth it? and how much time is left for studying. Also is it absolutely compulsory to do 4 a levels?

    I'm a year 12 student and...
    1)yes school days are long and tiring but honestly the teaching is very good and you have a very long break and lunch to rest (half an hour and 1 hour and a half respectively)
    2)saturday schools are literally nothing you get used to them by like the 3rd week
    3)as i previously mentioned you have very long breaks and lunches to rest but ALSO you are more than free to study and do work during this time which is very useful plus have free periods and time before and after school
    4) yes you have to do 4 a-levels
