    I'm starting sixth form on Monday and I'm going to a new school. I'm quite a shy person so I'm kinda worried about making friends and the whole social aspect of sixth form.
    Any advice on how to approach people? because I literally know no one

    I was in exactly the same boat a few year ago so I can totally understand. It is difficult to initially break the ice however once u have had conversations with people U will start to feel more comfortable. Maybe say something along the lines of 'Hi, my name is Sara. I'm studying these A levels. wbu?''

    i started at a new school too, just ask open ended questions to people to start conversations. Don't be shy , everyone is friendly and in the same boat as you. for example i might say "hi , what subjects are you taking?"

    Hey I started sixth form a few days ago and I knew no one as well, but now I have talked to lots of people and am starting to make some friends
    I am quite shy too but you just have to muster up your courage and walk up to someone and introduce yourself to them. Try and make eye contact with someone who seems nice at first, then smile and walk up to them.
    You can start off with 'Hi, what's your name?' Then start a conversation by asking questions like 'What A levels are you taking?'/ 'Which school did you come from?' etc. Talk about things you find that you have in common e.g. you might find that someone is doing the same A level(s) as you or you have both come knowing no one. Good luck!
