When I found out I was coming to Chipping Norton School, I was really excited. I was the kind of girl who didn’t find anything scary; or thought she didn’t find anything scary. But I soon became more nervous at the thought of going to a school a lot bigger than mine, with no friends from my primary school. Nerves grew, but on the first day I realised, how could I be scared of a school? I knew it was new and different but that is good. Life is full of new starts and this is one of them. I had finished one chapter of my life and started a new one. Now I take all the challenges this school throws at me in my stride.
