I go to Stratford sixth form, it’s really good but not sure if it would be too far for you?

Sociology is amazing, and I’ve got friends who all do the other subjects and they really enjoy it too

I go to Solihull Sixth which is probably a little far away but just look at entry requirements for places! If it's just a few 4s it's probably not amazing.

I want to go somewhere completely new, to start fresh so I was looking in Birmingham as well

Well, Solihull Sixth is quite good. Stratford does good courses too. Apparently you’re better off avoiding the South and City colleges.

If you’re interested in a really good school try Birmingham grammar schools. Last week I went to King Edwards Camp Hill Girls and I liked it there a lot but the journey for me was just too far so I transferred.

You should just do your research. If you want to go off of statistics, you can look at this website:
https://www.compare-school-performan...ool-in-england
To compare different colleges in your area. Also look at OFSTED reports and league tables.

My biggest advice is to visit all of the colleges you're considering on open days and as much as possible. In terms of my chosen college, I was sold as soon as I went to visit it as it was clearly better than all the others.
