Moving To A School In A Different Area

It’s never easy moving schools. You’re settled in the school you’re in, you have your friends and you know your teachers and you just don’t want the change. But unfortunately sometimes it is necessary to move schools and start again. If you’re family has to move home for any reason whether it be because your parents have new jobs or just want to move to a new area you will have to adjust to being in a new school. But it does not have to be difficult. Once you’ve started at the new school there are little tips and tricks you could try to help you fit in and make new friends easily.

Always Be Yourself

When you start at a new school you may be nervous and be keen to make new friends as soon as possible. You may feel like you need to make friends by changing who you are. If you want to make friends quickly you may feel like to fit in you need to alter your personality. This is not a good idea. Changing who you are for other people will only make you feel insecure and pressured. Be yourself, you don’t need to change and you soon enough you will find friends who like you for what you are.

Take Up Invites

When you move to a new school in a new area you may want to keep in touch with friends from your last school and, depending on how far you now live from the old school, you usually can. But that doesn’t mean you should avoid making friends at your new school. If you are invited to another pupil’s house for tea then take up the offer. You may prefer to go out with your old friends but by getting involved with other pupils you’ll find yourself making friend much more easily.

Talk To Your Teachers

The teachers at your new school will be happy to help you settle in. If you are having any trouble fitting in or even if you just want to talk to someone who understand have a word with your teacher. He or she will be happy to listen to you. If you are having trouble with another class member and you don’t know what to do about it talk with your teacher. It’s not snitching and you won’t get into trouble for it. Your teacher is there to help so be sure to confide in him or her whenever you need to.

Moving to a new school in an unfamiliar area can be hard. You’ll be keen to fit in but don’t worry too much. Before long you’ll have made lots of friends and you’ll be having fun again. While it’s not a nice experience it can work out well and you may find the move was a good thing. Just be yourself, be cheerful and be friendly. Before long you’ll wonder what you were worrying about in the first place.
