    hi im going to a new school this year as a year 12
    (it's a large international school from k-13) and most of the people have been there quite a while.. there's only one other new students entering and i've never met her before

    do you have any advice on making friends? im so nervous about it! especially lunch on the first day.. i dont wanna be by myself

    what can i do?

    Be as smiley as possible and try to make a friend in your form/tutorbase before school. Introduce yourself, ask what subjects they're taking, just start chatting to them and mention how nervous you are, chances are they'll introduce you to peeps. Just make sure to start conversations, don't rely on others! It'll be finee, 3 of my now closest friends started at the beginning of my 6th form and within a month they'd found themselves.
