6 things I've learnt from surviving seconday school



As I'm sat here now writing this post I am officially free from school...or at least till the start of September that is. After five long and hard years at secondary school I have finally finished it and I am moving on to pastures new. Being completely honest I didn't particularly enjoy school and I did struggle, however I did get through it so I've got 6 tips to help you survive secondary school and leave still in one piece.


1. Your primary school friends squad won't stay together forever. I remember in yr7 thinking our whole primary school group would stay together until the end. Oh how I was wrong! That will most likely not happen, you'll all branch off and become different people. I only talk to about 2 of my primary school friends anymore


2. Staying out of drama is the key to success. If I had a £1 for every silly high school drama I was involved with, well lets just say I'd be very rich! Honestly it just isn't worth it. Picking arguments with people or just getting involved in things that are nothing to do with you isn't cool and it just makes everything worse.


3. Leading on from my last point, those 'friends' that treat you like shit aren't worth it either. I get that it might be hard to leave your friend group because of the fear of having nobody else to turn too. But you shouldn't stay around people who think nothing of you, start talking to new people and find yourself some new friends that treat you like you deserve be treated.


4. Appreciate your time at school. I'm pretty sure I spent the best part of the 5 years I was there thinking about the day I could leave. But towards the end I did start to appreciate school for the little things, like how nice the dinner ladies were and how much I enjoyed the Pasta king aka the best school dinner ever. As much as you might hate school, don't take your time there for granted because sooner than you know it, it'll all be over and you'll be forced to face the big bad world.


5. That teacher that you think hates you, probably doesn't. Most teachers just want the best for you and although you might think some have funny ways of showing it, that's just how they are. Teachers should push you to do your best and although you might not like it at the time, I'm sure you'll thank them in the long run. (I do get that there are always those few teachers you just cant get along with though and that's okay too, just be civil and respectful)


6. When it comes to picking subject options and then eventually where you will go after yr11, don't make your choices based on your friends. I know how terrifying it can be to go in to new things not knowing anybody but you will be okay! What happens if you choose to do something or go somewhere just because that's what your friends doing and then they end up not being able to do it for some reason and then you're stuck there on your own doing something you didn't even want to do in the first place. At least start off somewhere on your own that you actually want to be and you will eventually make friends.


I hope this helped some of you who are still in school and maybe some others of you found some of the points relatable. Thanks for reading.

  2. I really enjoyed this post! I've not even spoke to some of the people I was in primary school since I got to high school and I'm only friends with a couple of them now too! I can really relate to number 3 because I am having trouble exactly like that at the moment! I know they aren't worth it but I am so scared of leaving our friendship group!x

  3. I'm here if you ever want to talk about it Erin but honestly just slowly start to move away from them if they aren't treating you right. You deserve better! x
