'You're now at secondary school - you've settled in, made some friends, possibly a few enemies and you know the subjects you like and the ones you loathe. Added to that, you've just managed to survive the most BONKERS year ever - a pandemic, no school, exam chaos - whhhhat. Are you feeling a little frazzled? Like you can't be bothered? That everything is just pointless? We all feel like that from time to time. But there are things you can do to get back your mojo, find a bit of hope and get back on track.'
Whether facing exams, a big change or having to make up for lost time, Head Teacher Matthew Burton is here to help students get motivated again.
From ways of catching up and overcoming the tough times, to skills for beating assessment stress, problem solving and tapping into your potential, this is the one-stop guide for kids who are in need of a bit of hope, some soothing words of advice and a good old pep talk to get them going in school again.
Whatever it is that young people are worried about, this book is crammed with advice so that though things at school might seem really hard, they will soon be back on track and raring to go.
