Sister scared of walking home herself

I live in quite a poor area of London, and am a Year 10 student. My younger sister is a year 8 and has recently begun walking home without parents. She usually waits the extra 15 minutes to walk with me (staggered entry/exit because of covid) and isn't the most fearless or cocky of students. Unfortunately, I occasionally find myself in a 30 minute detention for something silly, and that way all the rough kids from the other secondary come out while I'm sat inside.
A few months ago, there was a stabbing involving some kids from our school and the other. Mental health support for pupils was not provided, apart from workshops aimed 'scare' us away from crime. Now, my sister doesn't like walking straight after school ends or waiting for me.
Is there anything I can say to her to help? She nods and listens to my encouragement, but doesn't pay attention, in a way.

She is probably more scared of not being sexually accosted why don't you just not get into trouble and look out for your sister.

I have ADHD, so yeah . . .
I'm a female as well. I've been recently just keeping my head down in class, but I'm worried over what'll happen to her when I leave the school.
