You can legally move out if you are 16. How do you intend to support yourself if you do? Do you have anywhere you are sure you can go, do you have a job etc?
There was a thread earlier, different circumstances but similar advice, would this help? http://www.theanswerb...e/Question772966.html

but as scotman says, where would you go, how would you have enough money for food and lodging?

yes i would be able to move into my boyfriends house his mum would let me and i have two job offers at the moment??
yes you can but no matter how troubling your current situation appears to be it is better to leave with your parents approval and support rather than taking off in a huff trying to spite them.
I wish you had access to hindsight.
