okay so ive been accepted to a grammar school where i dont know anybody, not only this but i live in a council flat, and my dad is about to be made redundant so our financial circumstances are getting worse (im not saying this for sympathy, i just want to get some relevant advice). i dont believe in the stuck up stereotype and i know that there may be people that are not that rich, but there will most likely be people who are and im an easy target. i just wanted to know if there is anything i can do. i dont want my home life to put me off at school and i dont want to stick out more than i already do (i have a scottish accent and live in yorkshire). so any words of wisdom would be appreciated, because im sure there are loads of people that are in or have been in my situation. thanks .

At my grammar school there are a lot of wealthy people, but that's mainly because it's in a very middle class area. The people who aren't as rich don't feel out of place, and are usually smarter and harder working which people will respect, so if your school's anything like mine you don't need to worry about that. There's definitely no segregation based on wealth.

One important thing is to try and make friends and approach people as much as you can if you're new there. Though you'll probably get to know the other new people, most of the people who've been there since year 7 already have friends and won't bother making an effort with you. That's not to say they won't become friends with you if you try, just that they don't want to leave their comfort zones.

Crossley Heath, i think its technically called a selective school but everyone local just considers it to be grammar.
