Worried about leaving schoolWatch
It's perfectly normal to be worried about this, but I've found that sixth form is honestly not that bad at all! Especially if you choose A-Levels that you enjoy. It's quite nice to have more freedom with your time and even if you go to a sixth form without your currrent school friends, you'll make new ones really quickly. Obviously it's a step up in terms of your workload, but it's all relative so don't worry - take the time to enjoy your last year of school and look forward to what's to come
At my sixth form you get free periods, and you're allowed to go out at lunch (like to the local Spar lol), and also we don't have to wear uniform anymore. It is definitely busier, but it's nice to have more freedom over how you organise your time I guess. EPQ is a tricky one, it depends on your other A-Levels. If you're taking 4 or 5, I wouldn't recommend it, but I would defo consider it if you're taking 3 and have a genuine interest in something.
