    Hi guys!
    So basically im moving sixth forms (due to my current school not doing a subject i wanted to do) and the school im moving to is much closer to the centre of the city whereas the one I went to was in a small town! Next week I have an induction day and I'm really worried as I wont know anyone there so I dont want it to be awkward or people to stare at me and think im weird as i dont know anyone

    Please could you give me some tip thank you

    Um. There will be quite a lot of people in the same situation I would imagine.

    One tip I do have is dress up as a pokemon trainer or a pokemon.

    Hmm. Its not weird but thats how you are meant to introduce yourself. But idk. Just go up to someone start speaking to them about something. (idk what) then after speaking bring up your name. Is the induction day where you have lessons? Or is it just applying. If its just the applying then you don't really have to talk to anyone. Thats not really where you meet people. You meet them when it actually starts during lessons. If its where you have lessons then I guess you could talk to them about stuff. But it is a 7 week break. So you don't really have to get to know people now as they probably won't remember you after the 7 weeks. Depending on how long the lessons is.

    Hi! There are probably loads of people in the same situation as you, and probably feeling nervous too. Just smile and maybe try talking to the people sat around you. Maybe try complimenting people, looking out for things in common, maybe like a fandom related thing ( I am personally quite a big fan girl xD).
