    I'm starting year 12 at a new sixth form in September, in a school I haven't been to before. I've been home-schooled for a few years, as I was bullied in my previous school for being gay. I have a few friends and I'm an 'out-going' person, but I'm worried this will make me look odd. I've done a Facebook stalk of some of the other students at the school who'll be in my year, and there are a couple of out gay ones, but they're really camp and attention-seeking, which isn't like me at all. They seem to have thousands of friends on Facebook and in real life (and even though I have't met them), it doesn't seem like we'd get on.

    I'm worried that people will have their own cliques, especially the gay ones who seem to rule big groups of the year. I don't know if I'll fit in with people, even though I consider myself to be a nice person. I'm quite 'straight-acting' and I'm worried that people who get on with gays at this school will only want to be friends with the flamboyant and Facebook-obsessed ones. Is it going to be as bad as I think it could be? Thanks

    I can't predict whether you will fit in or not but I can tell you to be yourself. As that's the way you will be happiest.

    I think you will be fine, schools aren't just all the 'popular kids' it's just someone who hasn't saw the school will only ever see the 'popular ones'. So they probably get the impressions everyone is a popular arrogant person, they're really not. I am sure you will find some people who you get on with. There is a wide variety of people in a 6th form.

    You'll find your place in sixth form. Nobody cares what orientation you are there, there was a homosexual male in my lessons but he was the most adorable guy ever. He had a lot of friends, females mostly. Don't worry! Be yourself and they'll like you for you :')

    I don't really know tbh, there weren't any "popular" people in my college.
    There were groups though. The crazy outgoing girls and boys stick with each other, they tend to skip tutorials etc and then end up failing.
    There's people who tend to get into groups with who share similar interests or come from similar backgrounds. Usually the pretty girls and guys stick together because they think they're above all else -.-, those who don't make so much effort stick together, those who are more bothered about education stick together. That's how it was.

    I was honestly the odd one out because (although this is VERY debatable) people from college found me pretty but I disliked the outgoing type of people and their disgusting personalities so I didn't hang around with them, I wasn't a total nerd so I didn't bother with them, I then decided to make my own friends and everyone just kind of stuck together... We're all very different but I guess if you do your own thing, you'll survive college...if you don't they'll eat you alive... Don't play yourself up. Be yourself and people will come to you. If you need any help let me know

    I don't know how accepting the popular people are really, never tried to speak to any of them... They aren't in my lessons or anything. The people that are in my lessons are cool though.
