For Children

Moving to secondary school is exciting but it can also be scary! It often seems very different from primary school. Lots of Year 6 children have worries about going to secondary school. 

“I’m scared of getting bullied” 
“What if I get lost?”
“How will I remember all my books?” 
“I’m worried I won’t be able to make friends...”

Luckily, there is a lot of help available and lots of things you can do to help you feel more confident about going into Year 7.
  • You can read the tips and do the quizzes and games on this website. 
  • You can find out more about your secondary school by going to their website (search for the name of the school on Google). 
  • You can look at some of the websites in the Links/Resources section of this website. 
  • You can tell your friends, parents and/or teachers how you are feeling and what you are worried about.
