Not sure if this is the right place but if it isn't i'm sure someone will move it to the correct place.
I've been to two senior schools. The first school i went to for two years and then we moved house and i had to move schools. At first i loved the new school and really enjoyed being there but as the years ahve gone on i've gradually liked it less and less. Last year i went into my third year at this school, my GCSE year. During this year i considered moving to a different school for sixth form, but as the exams approached and i was on study leave i found i was happier at school and decided to stay.
Now i'm half way through my lower sixth AS-level year and i can't take it anymore. Part of it is the school itself, i find the atmosphere suffocating and i don't particularly like the authortative way in which it's run. And another part is the people i'm around. The people who go to my school all seem to be of a particular breed (it's a grammar school and is highly selective). I can't find anyone who i really fit in with. I mean i have friends there but it seems that they just annoy me all the time and i can't stand being around them.
I found that the less i see them the better we get on, and this means that seeing them every day makes our relationships very bad.
I've spoken to a couple of my friends who did leave at the end of the GCSE year and they both understand exactly what i'm saying, and believe based on waht i've told them, that i would get on far better at a college or a school which has a mroe relaxed atmosphere for the sixth form (not meaning that in a more relaxed work attitude though).
My problem is that i don't know how to broach this topic with my parents. At the beginning of the year i did go through it with my dad and he tried to find a different place for me to go but all the places were full, however they did say there would be spaces next year if i was interested. I don't know how to go about bringing up this topic with my parents as they don't really have any idea of how i feel. They both believe that i'm quite happy at school and qutie happy in the relationships that i have there. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks x x x

All sarcasm aside, I'm not really sure how this disappeared from our collective radar screen. So to make up for that, let's put this in the right place, shall we?

See you in our Support Groups forum!

Write your parents a letter how you feel. Describe how miserbal the school is and how you feel alone. If you want to meet friends join a club or something that is socialable. Sometimes i tell my friends off because i am annoyed but making friends with a person you have never thought you could be friends with could happen and they might become best friends with you. Travel alone like a foreign exange group and you might meet people that are just like you and friends for life.
