Extreme anxiety in mainstream

Does anyone have a really anxious child at secondary school? How do they cope? Took ds to an open evening at the local school and he was really getting stressed just approaching the building and his eczema came up immediately. We feel that he needs small class sizes which is going to be impossible in secondary. What do we do?

Ive ended up homeschooling. mainly cause local SN schools were full, Im a teacher anyway and DCs having a much calmer time with 1-1 teaching and company.

Is your son in a SN school? If mainstream does he have support?

Home school is not possible. He is in a ms school at the moment with full time hours on the statement. He was kept out of school for half of the day all last year due to funding issues (LA and school say it was so they could understood his needs hmm). Anxiety has got much worse in the last year but we have only just got a dx because he is so complex and no-one really knows how to deal with him. LA of course have said that any ms school will be able to meet his needs.
