    Starting on a Friday is so dumb, is it inset days or something?

    And I've just realised I start properly on the Thursday, since we have a day on the Wednesday which is completely pointless, you have to go see your form tutor for 10 minutes, set yourself some targets (which are forgotten about afterwards) and then you can leave again. Any other schools do this or is it another of mine's odd ideas?

    Oh and by high school I meant secondary school, is it just in my area that all the schools are called high schools rather than secondary schools haha?

    My school has a day like that too except it's the middle of the year some time, if we don't go they count it as bunking off

    Not really, but I'm not dreading it either. I don't think it'll be that much different from Year 10 tbh. What about you?
    At my school, my teachers are probably going to exaggerate it so much and scare us all, so I think it is gonna be pretty different from year 10. And also, I'm going to have loads of new teachers, including my form tutor. I think I am kind of looking forward to it though, getting bored of this holiday.:rolleyes:

    I start on the 3rd too - Y7 and 12 go back on the 2nd though. Not looking forward to having my school picture taken; they always do it on the first day when I look the worst!!
    Yeah, same thing at my school.
    My school don't even tell us when we're going to have our pictures taken so we just turn up to school and get an ugly picture taken which is put up on SIMS for everyone to laugh at every time the teacher clicks on it. So at least you know that you're having your picture taken on the first day back and you can prepare yourself for it!:bigsmile:

    Teachers are like that everywhere tbh.:rolleyes: Just don't let it get to you. I don't, believe me. I've already done 6 GCSEs so I'd like to think that I'll be able to handle the rest that I'll be doing next year Having new teachers, especially in Year 11 when feeling able to approach your teachers freely, is annoying. Hopefully you'll have great teachers that will support you. Surprisingly I haven't gotten bored of this holiday yet! I just seem to have a million ways to entertain myself.

    Oh fair enough, a language is compulsory at mine too. :\ And I wish I had that option, I have to do both full course RS and PE which sucks. I'm lazy too, I'd go with RS haha! :P

    And I have a new form tutor too, my old one was made redundant - everybody was in tears on the last day since we've had him since Year 7. I guess it'll be different for me too.

    That's kind of similar to us, but the year 7s (and I think the people starting 6th form...) start on Tuesday afternoon and we all start on Wednesday.

    Really? All my teachers are the same, they usually keep teachers the same from Y10 through Y11 for continuity (unless they leave ofc). I'm looking forward to it a bit too, I'm so bored! School gives me a bit of structure to be honest. And I doubt it'll be that much more stressful than Y10, except perhaps in the lead up to mocks and exams.

    We have compulsory languages but not RS or PE. We do RE but it isn't examined. My old form tutor left in Y9 because of a *****y teacher but I won't go into that.

    I ordered all my stationary from WHSmiths, and then a few days later, I got a notebook, that I didn't order, and the invoice was to a completely different person! So I've emailed them, pissed off.:mad:
