What's the difference between primary and secondary school?

Moving to secondary school is a big step and can seem a bit scary. You could be worried about leaving the school you know really well.

You might find that there are more buildings and that everything seems bigger than primary school but you'll find your way round in no time.

Whether you're going to walk there or get the bus or train, getting to your new school can seem tricky at first but within a few weeks it will be second nature!
