    Why is this in mature students?
    Because for some reason new users often seem to struggle with putting things in the right forum.

    As for the question, you're worrying for nothing. Yeah, it's scary starting a new school but you'll fit in. If you worry too much about not fitting in then it'll make the problem worse

    I wouldn't worry about it. New schools are hard but don't try too hard to fit and don't panic. As cheesy as it sounds just be yourself and fit into your own crowd among people you like. Try not to stand out would be my best advice because it might bring the wrong interpretation of you as a person to other people, but, honestly, don't worry about it! enjoy the new experience and the fresh start.

    I'm in year 9 and I go to school in London, so I think I can somewhat understand what situation you are in We've had plenty of new people joining our year, and the most important things I'd say is that your friends will come to you!! It's always hard to place someone/try and predict what group of friends they'll have when you first meet them, but trust me you will somehow naturally gravitate to your new friends even if this may take time. Don't try extremely hard to become a specific person's friend; let yourself naturally befriend those who just happen to become your friends without an extreme amount of effort (I hope this doesn't sound too confusing!). Also, do not be fake because people will see straight through that and you don't want to be hated by everyone for pretending to be someone you're not.

    Good luck and be yourself!! Xx
