Back to School – 1st year welcome pack for students

A survival guide to secondary school

Remember that you are not the only person who is starting secondary school and that nearly every student starting, is feeling just like you. Here are some tips to help you in the move from primary to secondary school:

  • Be yourself and don’t show off - there is no need to try to impress other students
  • Treat all students the way that you would like to be treated.
  • Try to make friend with a variety of people.
  • Remember that all of the other new students have similar feelings about starting a new school – whether they show it or not.
  • Try and make some contact with older students that you know in the school
  • Remember teachers are there to help you. Make contact with those you feel comfortable with and share your worries, concerns and strengths with them.
  • Do find out and get involved in extra-curricular activities.
  • Get a good balance between work and play and enjoy your new school.
