Worried about my 11 year old friendships

My daughter is now at secondary school and although she has settled in well and is doing well academically I am worried about her lack of a good friend. She has a few close friends out of school but seems to struggle to maintain friendships at school. How do I broach with her that I am worried and that I know that she has been unhappy about this issue?

No advice really, but my DD was the same, no consistent solid friendships in y7 or y8, but now y9 we hear the same names consistently.

Continue to encourage out of school friendships, and also in-school clubs that may help her 'find' like minded friends?

I don't know but I'm in the same boat. DD has drifted away from a lot of her friends, they all seem to be growing up faster than she is. It seems to be a difficult age for girls - sorry to hear you're having problems too sad.

Definitely keep out of school friendships very active. One of Dds best friend is out of school and when she falls out with in school friends, she can rely on her best friend. It is a difficult age for girls.
