sixth forms Watch
i am currently at a state girls school but have always wanted to go to private school - i dont know why i just have
so now is my chance when looking for sixth forms. however, i do not think my parents can afford it now that they are going to pay for my sisters uni accommodation for 3yrs!! i was thinking of getting an academic scholarship but i dont know whether i would get it - its still not enough off the fees. i might be smart enough (im hoping to get at least all As but i dont know what the competition is like)
i dont mind whether its day or boarding (boarding is more expensive though) but there is only one local day school that i could get to near me and the scholarship is only 15% off.
i would probably end up going to a state school for sixth form but i would at least like to try at private education but i dont know what to do!!
please help, any advice apprieciated
If this is something you really want to go for, could you see if you could get a local business to sponsor you?
Your best bet is to sit down and talk this through with your parents, see what they say.
This extremely clever girl at my school got this and attends rugby school
Can I just ask what you think you are going to get out of being at a private school which you can't get from going to a state school / college?
Anyway, I'd say better facilities, excellent teaching, a wider range of extra-curriculars etc.
