    Currently choosing a levels and my school is very restrictive would like to be a physiotherapist and do biology and Spanish (which are options at my school) but also want to do photography or psychology but neither are not options. Really stuck for a third a level if I don’t move.

    Makes me think I should be looking at other schools.

    Had a look and found a good school nearby with the right courses but have nerves about not making friends and the commute is more difficult- it involves taxi, train and walking

    Any ideas on what I should do?’

    You need to pick what suits you best, at the end of the day.

    I applied to two sixth forms, and I chose my current school because it offered Spanish on-site whereas the other school required me to travel to another district to have my lessons (Yeah, I know. Weirdos).

    Double check what subjects are ideal for a physiotherapy course at university and decide whether the commute is worth it. You have to be sure it's the right decision for you.

    With regards to making new friends, the transition between schools is always going to be hard. I was worried about it too after my GCSEs but I settled in quite well and have made friends with new people. It depends how you apply yourself and if you let people get to know you, I personally think.

    The easiest way to make friends is through your classes and seeing who you get on well with in lessons. If they work well with you in the classroom, then you may find they're just as fun or kind outside, too.
