    I'm kind of stressed out - I don't know where to stay at my school (school x) or move school to school y for sixth form.

    I have some good friends at my school, but my year is so cliquey and tbh I'm kind of sick of seeing the same people everyday (and also I'm friends with some people but not super good friends aka I don't get invited to their social gatherings etc which kind of makes me feel a bit down, also, my friends sometimes are inconsiderate about talking about plans they are doing without me when I'm there... so yeah).

    I feel that school y could be a fresh start for me but I feel petrified leaving. They are both good schools, but school y performs better on the league tables.

    I know what my school is like, and they are currently making the building bigger so there will be a new build to look forward to. I know what my subject teachers and departments are like whereas I don't know much about school y. And there will be new people in my school's sixth form anyway so there'll be a change of dynamic in the year group.

    However, I kind of feel like a fresh start at school y is a good idea as well e.g. Getting away from the same things and people I've seen for 5 years. I don't know, I told myself I wouldn't move, but the more I think about it, the less of a bad idea it seems to be - it seems like a more feasible idea than I previously thought. But I'm quite scared about making new friends :-/

    I'm leaning towards staying at my school but I think there's a chance I'll move. I feel upset when I think about leaving my school because I know I'll miss it so so much, like even the little things like banter with the teachers and the people I say hi to in the corridors, but today I was thinking about moving and I thought I might leave oh idk wdyt?

    Thanks in advance

    Go for it.

    I hated a lot of people in my year. Hated a lot of the teachers too.

    Much happier at my new sixth form. Better people too.
