Worried about my daughter starting secondary school. :-(

Hi, my daughter has come from a mainstream primary with a full time one to one, and on Tuesday will be starting a special secondary school. She has learning difficulties and possible autism (PDA), and severe social anxiety.
She has been for a few taster sessions and is undecided on weather or not she'll like it...
What worries me most is the school bus, especially on the first day. She'll be getting on a bus full of people she doesn't know and arriving at the school. She has never done anything like this before!
I'm not usually a worrier and I haven't let my daughter know that I'm at all worried, but I think I'd like someone who's been there to tell me it's all going to be ok.
