I'm 16 years old and about to enter sixth form very soon. I'm wildly unhappy in my school and there are little to no other schools that would fit both my and my parents requirements. My parents suggested having me homeschooled and hiring professional teachers and tutors to do so. I find myself a lot more motivated and less anxious when independently learning. Can anyone offer me any advice on whether that would be a good idea or any pros and cons to being taught from home by professional teachers.Thank You.

As long as you still meet up with friends on a regular basis I see no reason why you shouldn't.

imo it's probably better because you're getting all the attention from the teacher.

I doubt it would be ideal in those subjects. How would you manage with practical in Chemistry or Biology. Is there a 6th form college you could attend even if it means travelling further. That may be a better option.

it’ll be hard to do biology and chemistry at home especially because of the practicals and just the amount of content that you have to learn. how will you do the practical lessons at home? especially for chemistry when you have to work with dangerous chemicals

As others have said, you will miss out on a lot of practical experience if you do Biology and Chemistry at home and it is both difficult and expensive to find a centre that will let you take the assessed practicals as a private candidate.
