    Long story short, I really haven't been having a good time at my new sixth form, and have contacted my old school to see if they'll have me back.
    Yes, it's March. Yes, we have nearly done two terms. But my personal tutor at my new sixth knows how unhappy I am and is fully supportive with whatever the outcome is.
    My mum phoned and spoke to the admin at my old school who said, without really consulting head of sixth, it was too late. At the time she didn't know my mum's proposed plan of getting me a private tutor to help catch up and also that my current sixth would assist in transitioning exam boards until my official start date back at old school.
    So I contacted the head directly to say exactly what has happened and whether a tutor changes things. (Really don't wanna say what's exactly happened at my new sixth but I'm just so unhappy with the environment and it's hindering my grades + I just come home overwhelmed all the time. Been seeing a counsellor for months but honestly I feel worse, and i usually have so much resilience. My mum has spoken other parents whose kids went through the exact same and they're so much happier at their old school when they moved back).
    My personal tutor at new sixth said she also sent an 'extensive' email to head at old sixth without realising i sent one too to fully express myself. She's hoping te lack of reply (as we sent these monday) means the head is reconsidering the decision made.
    Do you think the lack of reply is good? I just hope they realise how serious I am, that I'm not doing this lightly.

    Dont think you can read anything into it.
    The fact your tutor wrote counts in your favour.
    It may depend on whether they have space for you.
    Your other alternative is to go back but restart year 12.
