I've been looking at where I will continue education after GCSEs since I'm now in year 11. Sixth Form colleges appeal to me since they offer mixes of BTECs and A levels rather than just A levels or 1 full-time BTEC at a time. So far the only ones in and around London I've found are Coulsdon 6th Form college and Esher. I can't really find a list of them and I'm struggling to find more with good reviews. Can anyone help, many thanks.

I go to Coulsdon College right now and tbh, don't listen to the reviews. It's actually a good school you have a lot of freedom and it's a good environment and you get treated as if your an adult too. The teachers I've had so far are actually good and nice. The only thing I would say about coulsdon is that it's just annoying getting home because the bus stops get packed, but that's it.

Just around London in general, I myself am near Wimbledon and don't mind travelling say about an hour I guess.

That's interesting, thanks. I do plan on going to their open evening next month. I always try to take reviews lightly as people won't usually bother commenting about something if they had a good experience but that gives me some reassurance thank you. I think the freedom and maturity thing is big for me so thanks that's a big help.

I've looked into Westminister Kingsway and it does look really good. Thanks for the recommendations I'll look into them, I currently go to a catholic secondary school so shouldn't be too different going to a catholic SFC.

St Charles is really good. Like the environment is really friendly, you have a sense of independence and everyone is kind. The environment outside college I liked as well

Like everywhere there are some incidents outside of college that happen or maybe some fights... like one time we got checked for any knives or something
But that was a routine check

Anyways yh but from the time I’ve been there there was only like 1 incident where someone got stabbed outside college and my teachers have been talking bout incidents from the past so they rarely happen now

And wow now I’m making it sound like this college is awful... but it’s not!! I swear lol
