Changing school

    So let's get right into it. I'm currently in 5th year and i go to a school with about 200 students. It's clearly very small. It's only been around for a few years. I love the school to bits but I need change.
    There are only 20 others in my year. We grew really close in transition year and I have 3 very close friends. However, last summer, I only saw one of them on one occasion and I didn't see the other two at all..
    I live in the country and have most of my life. None of my primary school friends chose the same school as me. I basically have no friends outside of school and it's hard to make them.
    Anyway, I could go deeper into it but it'd sound like a sob story.
    I want to move school, like I said, I love the school, to bits but I need a bigger school with more people and more friends.
    I'm just wondering what I should say when asked why I'm moving. Should I lie or what?
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    There are so many benefits of a small school. Look, in just one more year you will be in college with the option of thousands of friends, is it worth the upheaval?
