One of the areas that we are thinking of moving to, operates the middle-school system and therefore our year 7 child would be moving into the middle school which runs from Year 5-8, so half-way through the school. I am concerned that this will be more tricky than moving to a 'normal' secondary school in year 7 as in the middle school friendships will have had two years to develop already whereas in the secondary school, the year 7s have just started the school and friendships are still quite fluid - Hope that makes sense! Does anyone have any thoughts?

I wouldn't worry about it tbh. Established friendship groups grow when new kids join. And I think the middle school system is great in terms of not making kids grow up too fast.
