Now that it’s confirmed gcses won’t go ahead and schools are doing these ‘mini tests’, I’m leaving school on 14th May and I assume it’s the same for all the other year 11s. But tbh I don’t want to leave, I’ve been at my school for 5 years everything has been the same and I don’t want for it all to just end now, I like school. I’m going back to the same school in september for 6th form but a lot of my friends aren’t and I don’t want it all to change, I like how it is. Missing so much do year 10 and 11 already has just made it worse, I struggled in lockdown and I know i’ll have all summer to be with my friends but I just don’t really want my secondary school time to end and all my friends are excited about leaving school and glad it ends in May but I just can’t seem to feel the same way. I like the familiarity of school and I can’t help but think I’ve taken it for granted this whole time. I don’t want it to just end. Anyone else feel the same way??

I’m not in year 11, i’m in year 10, but i’m still so sad and stressing and just overthinking the fact that next year is my last year. And I feel like next year will barely even count since it’ll mostly be revision for our GCSEs , and I legit LOVE school so much, and I feel like covid and lockdown has just ruined my high school experience

I'm not y11 either, I'm y13, but I feel the same. I've been at my school 7 years and it just feels wrong leaving now. I definitely took it for granted before I left two years ago and went back after a week, and I've felt so lucky to be there ever since, and now I can't stand the thought of leaving. It feels like home.

I wish my school had a sixth form, so I could sort of carry on the experience like you lot

I'm leaving by choice, but it's slightly upsetting that everything has culminated in a whimper.

omg yes same! Ive been feeling like this too. It’s gonna be so weird, not seeing people we’ve spent five years with anymore. I’m not planning to go to the sixth form, but I can’t imagine how weird it’s gonna be next year for those who are - everything will be so much different. It feels weird that we’re gonna leave, we’ve been there for a whole five years. Even though I’m glad it ends in May, it’s kind of bittersweet. I feel like I need more time.
I also can’t keep thinking about how weird it’s gonna be making new friend circles, I really don’t wanna lose my current ones but I also realise sometimes it happens naturally.

Trust me but all my friends and myself we are excited to experience something new but deep down we are all upset to leave each other to new sixthforms just remember to plan things and stay in contact and you wont even realise there gone from your daily schedule as well as this is the time to branch out and make connections and widening your group.(This comes in handy in the future when you wanna go on holiday you have wide selection)Remember to look at the positives

yh I understand, it must suck for everything to end during covid when its been your school for 5 yrs so you've become accustomed to it. You're not the only one thinking this im in yr10 but next yr I will have to leave as well
