Hi! I have been tasked with preparing a 3-4 minute presentation about the strengths and weaknesses of our sixth form, and I can't think of too much. I thought if I knew which factors make for a good sixth form, then I could see which boxes my sixth form checks, and which ones it doesn't. Thank you!

Good factors:
- Highly qualified teachers
- Smaller student to teacher ratio
- Variety of clubs
- Good/healthy canteen food
- Lots of study places
- Good ventilation
- Clean bathrooms
- Organizes trips regularly
- Long break/lunch times so students don't burn out
- Good computers so work can be done efficiently
- Health mentors / people who are there to support you
- Helps you makes connections with other students

Bad factors:
- Outdated technology/software
- Cramped classrooms
- Dirty bathrooms
- Expensive food
- Teachers who are uninterested with what they're teaching
- Etc
