Worried about Dastar at school.

I'm going to be going to a different school next year. I've never worn a dastar before and there was basically no other sikhs who did at my last school. There is many more at my next school.

I'm worried about what type should i wear? I dont want to wear the wrong type from everyone else and seem silly.
I like types such as what Jagmeet Singh wears but maybe a smaller version, but i am unsure if these count as formal and ok for school?

Also i do not yet know how to tie a daster, and im panicking before even starting to learn. How long does it take to learn from videos? I dont really have anyone to teach me.

tl;dr what type of dastar should i wear for school? What is the most common type (i'm in the uk, in london). and do you have any good videos or links to guides of tieing that type?

How much cloth do I need? How many meters long and how wide?

Also do I need to make a ‘base’ as I see loads of videos say.

If I wear a nihang dumalla, I’m not gonna seem like a ‘wannabe’ am I because I am not Amritari? I don’t want to seem disrespectful in any way.
