The sixth year holiday survival guide

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since I embarked upon the rite of passage that is the infamous sixth-year holiday. Thinking about it now, I can’t believe that between us we actually managed to organise a week-long holiday for 11 fresh-faced 17-year-olds, but somehow, despite the palaver caused by half the group trying to check in at the wrong airport, 35 miles away, we finally found ourselves shepherded onto the plane, and on our way to Zante.

Set in picturesque Majorca, the new ‘islanders’ will be spending the next seven weeks flirting, building friendships, gossiping and well, falling in love?
