I’m not sure if this is a common feeling or if this is going to sound completely weird but I have so much anxiety about leaving sixth form. I feel like maybe it’s the fact that I’m not completely sure what I want to do when I finish sixth form (like Uni, Job, apprenticeship, gap year etc) but I feel like school and sixth form we’re both my kind of safety nets and like I feel safe and comfortable with the other students and I love the way you’re more on a similar level with the teachers now that we’re all adults. It’s just such a nice atmosphere and community feeling. I don’t know how I’m supposed to survive without it? It might sound weird but I’m the kind of person that needs the support of teachers around me to motivate me and encourage me to do work, without it I don’t know how I will realistically cope. I just wondered if anyone else feels like this, or if they have left sixth form/college/school and have coped. Just wanted some advice

Ahhh it is totally normal to feel like this, I remember feeling a little like this in year 12. You will realise, throughout your time, the goals and aspirations you want to achieve after sixth form. Bridging the gap might not be easy, but then again going a little out of your comfort zone could open opportunities otherwise missed. Having said that, there is always the opportunity to create a similar atmosphere that you feel comfortable in wherever you go.

Good luck!
