What you need to know about "Leaving or changing school and college"

Some people love going to school and college while others hate it and can’t wait to leave. If you have to leave or go to a new one, it can be unsettling and feel hard. Changing friends, changing what you do each day can seem daunting.

Making new friends, fitting in at a new place and being the ‘new’ person is hard work. The good thing it that you get to start fresh and be who you want to be.

Most schools and colleges know how hard it can be to leave or start, and they have people that can help you to adjust. All change can feel scary to start with and hopefully it will start to feel easier.

You can always talk to Runaway Helpline if it is making you feel like running away and you feel worried.

We hope what you see here helps. If you are feeling like running away or are away from home, we are here to listen.
