Changing Schools

Growing Up

Moving from Primary school to Secondary school is a big change and can feel scary and a bit overwhelming. You may be worrying about making friends, finding your way around or coping with school work.


It’s Good to Talk

Remember… it is natural to feel like this and it will take a few weeks to get used to being in a new school environment,  but if you’re feeling worried it’s always best to talk to someone – maybe a family member or a teacher you trust.

Making Friends

You may be in a form with lots of new class mates but remember everybody is in the same boat! Try and be open minded and give everyone a chance and they will do the same for you.


Joining clubs and societies is a great way to make new friends and be involved in your new school.

School life will be different but the teachers will make sure you’re supported to settle in and help you find your way around.
