Hi, i am currently in year 11 and looking choices for year 12. I am wanting to study physics, chemistry and pe but am unsure on if to go to a college or sixth form.

I was wondering what it was like being 17 or 18 and still having year 7’s there.

At my sixth form, there are two different common areas for sixth formers and lower schools. Essentially, we are separated from the lower years but you barely notice them anyways. Sixth Form is more structured than college and you will most likely have to be at school everyday of the week unlike college when you can have days of no lessons and don't have to come in.

I go to a college which gets grades above most ‘school sixth forms’, but apparently those are hard to find and are dependent on the region you live in.

I find college much better as the teachers are just teaching sixth formers and treat us like young adults whereas my boyfriend at a school complains they are treated like children. Obviously that can’t be the case for everywhere, but just what I’ve heard.

I also enjoy the freedom of college and independence, you aren’t spoon fed anymore so you can learn the way you need to do well.
