It really depends what you're looking for from your sixth form. Personally I would stay where you are because the more you like a subject, the more motivated you are to do the work and will in theory get better grades. I found myself at a not very academic sixth form too but still walked out with good grades and a place at med school, which I managed through my own motivation and work ethic. So you'll do well wherever you go becuase that's down to you not how academic your environment is. However. I also chose my sixth form because of the support i would be given and the opportunities. So if you feel like the other better sixth form will provide you with a better overall experience in that kind of way then maybe that's the better choice for you. Its just about having a feel for the place and if it's giving off 'good vibes'. It really depends how you feel about each place, where are you more swayed toward?
Right now I am going to an okay sixth form. The students themselves are mildly academic, the teaching is OK, but the sixth form is not really all that academic. However, since I've heard sixth form is more you than them I am prepared to work hard. The only reason I'm going to this sixth form is that it was the closest to my house and allowed me to do the subjects Biology, Psychology and English Literature.
However, I have recently been accepted into a great sixth form, known academically, outstanding from Ofsted, welcoming atmosphere, very diverse, (no everyone knows each other either which is a huge plus which will allow me to make friends easier). However there is a problem.
Psychology and English Literature are in the same option block, which means I have to choose one. I already had my sights set on bio, psych and english lit and don't really want to choose something else...
For my degree, English lit is not that important for it but it is a subject I like and I am good at. Most importantly I am interested in it as well.
However I am thinking of going to the excellent sixth form so picking sociology since I am mildly interested in it and think I will do well in it but I like English lit way more.
So now that you know the context, here's my question, should i choose the good sixth form or stay at the OK one?
besides no sixth form is worth going to if you can not do the subjects you wish to do
if you are not interested in a subject it will show in your results
