Going back to school / college
School or college can be really enjoyable, but it can also be really tough. It’s a big part of your life and you spend a lot of time there, so it’s very normal to feel anxious, stressed or worried about it sometimes. These pages have been created to support you. You may also find it useful to view our Wellbeing support for all Gloucestershire citizens page. If you feel like you need some extra support, there are lots of free, confidential services that can help, see Who can I talk to? for more information.
It can be difficult to get back into a routine after the summer holidays, especially when there has been an extra-long break because of Coronavirus...
Here are some of our tips to help you get back into the groove:
- Try and get a good night's sleep – if you feel tired it will affect your mood and make focusing on lessons harder. Do things before bed that help you relax and unwind (like taking a bath, reading a book and putting your phone away)
- Get ready the night before – pack your school bag the night before so you don’t have to rush around in the morning
- Remember it’s okay to take a break and have some down time after school. Try and set aside the time to do any homework, then take some time to chill out
