My Journey at Spring Hill High School

 

Background

I started Spring Hill in Autumn 2014 as a Year 7 student. I am currently in Year 9. Some people say that I am clever with a good sense of humour and I think they are right!

I have a diagnosis of SEMH. Because of my diagnosis I do not like change. I also find social interactions with adults and peers very difficult because I do not know who to trust. I find it difficult to concentrate for long periods and I need time to process information. In social settings such as school these things cause me great stress and my anxiety levels are always high.

The tables opposite tell you a little about my journey.
