I need advice, tomorrow is my sixth form induction day. I'm really shy in unfamiliar situations and I'm really nervous about changing schools again, this will be the seventh school I've been to as I moved a lot when I was younger but that makes me even more nervous as I'm so used to things going badly, it took me most of my 5 years in high school to start relaxing and socializing. I'm scared that moving schools again will make me go back in time and be really unhappy again. I'm also scared that because people already know each other I won't fit in and people won't make the effort to get to know me. I know 2 of my friends are also moving however I feel like I might end up being the third wheel on there friendship and end up sitting alone, they are also taking different lessons to me which makes it even harder. I guess I just need advice as to how I can stop being so shy and to make a good impression and meet people by myself instead of always relying on my friends. Are people willing to talk to new people even if they already have their friendship groups? also how should I dress so that I don't stick out like a sore thumb?

I think maybe don't overthink it and just go for it. Take someone with you probably like your mum because mums usually do that conversation starter thing with people. Also, a lot of people are nervous because it's sixth form and it's something completely new.
