Changing Schools

Starting a new school can be a great adventure, but sometimes a bit worrying too, depending on how you look at it. There are ways to help you feel happier about changing schools.

Tell your teacher or parents that you are worried about changing schools. Ask if you can visit before you start, many schools have special sessions where you can get to know the school and how it works.

Stay friends with friends from your old school. If it is a long way from your new school write to or phone your friends and remember it’s the school that is changing, not you!

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
