    I'm going to a sixth-form nearer to my house. I know barely anyone. I'm not confident that I'll actually get round to making new friends. There were also higher requirements to get in than my old school.

    I'm a bit awkward socially. Wish me luck.

    Tomorrow is my first day as well, what I suggest is that you go in with an open mind. Don't talk to EVERYBODY. Make yourself a little reserved as well. Because that is apparently the social norm to high standard schools

    Best to make friends with people in your subject classes. People are more mature at 6th form so its not as intimidating.

    Dont be put off by the fact most people will know each other.
    Maybe identify if there are other new joiners from outside as they will be more open to socialising.
    Be sociable and friendly, that means interact, smile a bit but dont look too keen.
    As pointed out above you will make more friends and its more use to find the people on your course.
