Many of your friends may be staying on but you should not join the Sixth Form just to be with your friends. Where you go depends a great deal on the courses you want to study or the courses that suit your personal strengths. Most of the teachers will remain at the school but you will not know who will teach you until the courses begin. Remember: it is the subject you have to enjoy and work at, not the teacher! For some students a change can be beneficial – it can be a chance to start afresh. Consider all possible options. Discuss with friends, parents, teachers, brothers, sisters, present Sixth Formers, careers advisors.What Is So Different About The Sixth Form?: What Is So Different About The Sixth Form?
