    So for the last year I've had my best friend with me through out year 12, we was always together and so I never really felt the need to hang out with anyone else.. However, yesterday I found out she failed her as levels, she got 2 e's and a u, but passed her BETEC course, but the head of sixth form wasn't willing to let her resit year 12 and basically kicked her out, I don't see why, it's clear she chose the wrong subjects due to the timetable issue, and surely should get a second chance?

    Anyway, now that leaves me on my own, I got pretty good grades and so leaving now would be dumb and irresponsible of me, especially seen as I'm getting on well with subjects and stuff.
    But I have no real friends, that's the issue.. Many people in my sixth form are very *****y and I dislike them allot, so I would talk to them.
    Last year I started talking to and hanging around with these 2 guys from my class allot more, but I wouldn't really hang out with them outside of school as we don't know each other well enough, I'd say hi around school and ask them stuff, but would it be weird if I just randomly started hanging around with them? Like 'hi please talk to me, I have no friends'

    what should I do? Dreading going back

    Sorry to say that but it's your last year in college and am in the same situation as yours i haven't got no one to talk to but it's the best choice. you'll get to focus on ur studies and no distractions well this is an advantage and ur going to uni. in a short while so whoever u become friends with , you won't be with them . but on the other hand you are feeling lonely and have no support. Try mixing with people who have a great attitude towards learning,helpful and won't let you down. Am sure there are great girls in ur school but you need to look for them. But at the mean time talk to them and have a good conversation

    I am in the exact same situation as you. I have a couple people I can speak to in class and lesson time, but outside of this they have their established friendship groups. I guess the options are to either be confident and just force yourself upon people or focus on your subjects and talk to friends outside of sixth form (which is what I plan to do, which is difficult as all my friends are going to Uni now and I still have one year left haha)

    I'm at a sixth form college, so we don't have to be in from 9am-half3/4 like I know a lot of school sixth forms do, so once I'm done for the day I tend to go home so I don't have to look lonely at college

    Try and make friends though, I assume your classes will be switched round slightly so you might talk to people you haven't really spoken to previously?

    I haven't really given any good advice, but good luck anyway!

    Sixth form is a pretty big place and there's a lot of people, including the Year 12s who'll be coming up. You'll definitely find new friends, try talking to other people and you might find that they're not at all like you thought them to be. There were some people in high school I never talked to but, being in the same classes as them, I've found them to be really fun.

    You'll have to pair up with someone in group activities so you'll be forced into talking to them—I wouldn't worry about it, most people are very accomodating.

    You're their for one more year, try and make friends with people in your class during group work as it's an easier way 'in'. If not you could try and join a team/society. Otherwise just use the extra time to do well in your A-levels. Year 13 flies by anyway.

    I was the same, I had no friends in sixth form, just a couple of people I could talk to in class who, unfortunately, had their own friendship circles, so they never wanted to hang out with me.

    At least you'll have more time for your studies. It'll be a lonely ride, but it'll be worth it in the end if you get good grades.

    I was just about to post that.

    You will find yourself spending your frees working instead, which is a good thing.

    Just meet new people in lessons and go to the library and stuff and see if there are other people on their own... I'm sure there will be others in the same situation as you where their friends have left! My mates left me in my 3rd year so I met some new friends in the year below me... You'll be fine just be confident and say hi first because chances are they will be nervous too... Also you don't have to hang out with them out of college, just make sure you have someone for break times
