I Need Help With...

Settling in

  • Step 1: Chat to everyone and anyone – you never know who you will click with! Remember you’re all in the same boat.
  • Step 2: Check out who your transition mentor is (someone from your old school) and have a chat with them about their experience.
  • Step 3: Join clubs and societies – a brilliant way to make friends across the year groups.
  • Step 4: Give it time – most people feel a mixture of nervous, excited, shy, chatty, overwhelmed and everything else!
  • Step 5: Volunteer! Helping others gives us a sense of belonging to a community and also puts you in touch with a new group of people. Check out the link below to our enrichment and volunteering page!
