You have been in public school since you were a young child but now that the time has come for you to start sixth form you are thinking that you may be able to get better grades if you join a private sixth form school. You are right. Statistics have shown that students who do sixth form exams in private schools do a lot better than those in public schools and a large number of them go on to join some of the best colleges in the world.
Of course this doesn’t go for any private school – you have to choose the right school because not all of them are as good as they claim to be. you can start by making a shortlist of private sixth form schools that you think would be right for you. Look at their pass rate in the last few years to find out how many of their students have been able to go on to university. You should also look into how many of those students were able to pass at the first attempt – some schools specialize in helping students who have failed previous sixth form attempts.
Next, think about whether you would like to be a boarder or whether you want to go to a day private school. There are many benefits to boarding. You will be able to focus better on your studies because all the distractions that you encounter while living at home will be eliminated. You will also have a lot of dedicated teachers at your disposal who can work with you on any areas where you are weak.
