Children's (either gender) age 12 doesn't sound very big. I used to buy girls' clothes as a student but usually age 13-14. They probably offer the kids' sizes for kids who aren't big enough for the adult sizes.
Sounds like a women's 8 or 10 would fit you, but the 10 might be more comfortable for running.

Yes, you're probably right. The M&S sizes for kids clothes have girls size 11-12 as 152cm (probably too small), and 12-13 as 158 (would probably fit modulo breasts) and boys 11-12 as 152, no size for 12-13, and 13-14 as 164. But there is huge piles of variation in it between manufacturers.

I generally prefer boy/men-t shirts to girl/women-t-shirts when running, so some information on how extra small the extra small is, or how big the boys 12 is would be helpful. Also, they say in big scary bold letters 'There is no way to change this! Get your size right!' which is fine, but if that's a problem they could give us a bit more information...

M&S children's clothes come up rather large though (compared to many other children's ranges) as they like to allow plenty of growing room. So don't go on these!

If you don't want to deal with the issue of the women's fit, get the men's Small.
