    Hey! I'm going to be at Richmond this year and I'm enrolling on Tuesday. I'm so so nervous, and even though I'm going in with a friend and know a few people from my secondary school, it's still super scary and a huge change. I'm doing AS Maths, English Lit, Sociology and Graphics.

    I remember being super excited at the beginning of summer but now I'm quite anxious.

    Hello! Maybe we could get talking on whatsapp like me and Some Bad Karma did? It'll be so nice to make some new friends before starting! The first week is just getting to know each other it seems, but I'd hate to go in alone/knowing nobody on the first day!

    Yep, okay! I'm not quite sure how to PM and things on TSR as I've only just made an account though

    Update: never mind, I've figured it out

    I graduated RuTC in August 2014 and college was honestly one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.

    Honestly, I'm not bitter about it but please do me this favour:

    DON'T BE MEAN TO PEOPLE.

    DON'T SINGLE PEOPLE OUT.

    BULLYING IS HONESTLY THE ILLEST, GROSSEST THING YOU CAN DO TO ANOTHER KID.

    If you can't stand somebody, just ignore them and turn the other cheek.

    Was it that bad?/: Tell us a little about it?
    And yeah, I kind of tend to keep myself to myself. I've been through enough years of bullying to learn from it to be honest..

    I'm super nervous about starting. I've just finished year 11 and now i'm super worried that i've made a big mistake by going Richmond
    Don't stress! Every person's experience is different! I've already made two friends from this thread and they're lovely! You can always befriend me if you're worried(:

    I'm going there too, I only know one person who's going there with me though. I'm actually retaking AS levels because my grades were horrible....I hope going to a college sixth form will be a lot better since everyone is starting from scratch.

    I'm just glad there's no dress code. The dress code in my old sixth form was stressed way too much than it should have, so much so that I actually got pulled out of class because I was wearing a jean shirt underneath my blazer..... talk about priorities...

    Hi! We have a little whatsapp group for some of us who are starting! You're more than welcome to join what tutor group will you be in? And yeah, I'm thankful for the dress code!

    Same I'm now anxious too zhidee but I have you and you I so if we have any trouble we can always talk
    I'm anxious because my courses have been changing so much due to the college changing what they offer. Now I'm worried what I've got is not what I'm going to be good nor confident with

    I wish I saw this thread earlier! I'm at RuTC too in my first year and I've been here for months and haven't a lot of friends, if I do their timetables are different so I can't really hang out with them a lot

    Hi!

    So yesterday I enrolled at RUTC. Problem is, I don't know anyone whatsoever that goes there and I'm absolutely petrified of starting on September 1st.

    Looking for anyone else that goes there, is going there or has gone there. Really want some support xD

    I struggled a lot in high school and had no friends, so I really don't want the same to happen at college too. Maybe finding fellow students on here could potentially help me find friends, or at least friendly faces, for when I start!

    Thank you xx
    Hi could you tell me how its like at richmond as i also will be taking my gcses there. are the people friendly? how are the teachers like? are people racist? any gangs/ wannabe gang bangers?
