Growing up in secondary school

It can seem strange having been the oldest in primary school to being the youngest in secondary school. Remember that everyone in your year will be feeling the same.

At secondary school there will be opportunities to try things that you haven't before. You'll study new subjects and can join all sorts of after-school clubs.

There's gymnastics, cross country, engineering and technology; whatever your interests there'll be an activity for you. With all these new activities and skills you'll soon build confidence.
