23 Things All Sisters Who Went To The Same School Know

We are two different people with two different names, thanks.

3. Being the little sister meant feeling really cool when all the older girls from your sister's year said hello to you in the corridor.

"Yeah, I hang out with 16-year-olds all the time."

5. That said, you always felt super protective of your little sis.

And if anyone in her year was mean to her, you'd swoop in with your older friends and scare them off.

6. After a while, Friday night sleepovers meant that your friendship groups started to merge.

If you were allowed a friend round on Friday, it was only fair that your sister was allowed one too. So the four of you inevitably ended up learning Top of the Pops dance routines together.

7. And you were each allowed to take one friend to your sister's birthday parties.

If you were the older sister, your friend and you were expected to help the grown-ups organise the party, which made you feel very ~mature~.

8. In primary school, photo day was extra embarrassing for you, because you were forced to pose for one together after your individual ones.

And if your mum was especially cruel, you wore matching hairstyles for this reason.

9. Your parents were super proud when you were both involved in the same school events, like the Harvest Festival.

"One of my girls plays the farmer and the other is a potato!"

10. But if you were in different houses, they never knew which team to support on Sports Day.

"Go Westminster! But also Hastings!"

11. School uniform shopping was really fun for the older sister.

The older you got, the more school uniform you needed. And getting bits of sports kit that your sister wasn't old enough for yet made you feel very smug.

12. But receiving endless hand-me-downs was boring for the younger sister.

Especially if the older sister hadn't looked after their uniform properly, so your school jumper was tattier than all your friends'.

13. If you got the school bus, you never sat with each other because that would have been very uncool.

But you probably sat across from each other, or in front of each other, so you could make sure each other was OK.

14. On home clothes day, your mum always tried to make you wear matching clothes.

You were into this for a while, but when the older sister went to secondary school you realised it wasn't cool any more.

15. But wearing matching costumes on World Book Day and Halloween never stopped being cool.

It made you feel like twins.

16. Your parents always encouraged you to be members of the same school clubs, so they could pick you both up at the same time.

So if your sister was into drama, so were you. And if your sister was in the orchestra, you had to get good at music.

17. As you got older, the big sister had to proof-read the younger sister's homework, coursework, and UCAS form.

Even if you objected, your parents made you do it.

19. If the younger sister showed a vague interest in the older sister's favourite subject, she was accused of copying.

Even though now, when you think about it, it's actually kinda cute that she shared your interests.

20. Your parents constantly forgot which subjects you both studied, so always ended up seeing the wrong teachers at Parents' Evening.

22. As soon as the older sister turned 17, she took over the school run.

Which meant louder music and more snacks on the way to and from school.
