In this section, AHS staff and students share their stories of migration.
Here at Aylsham High School, we have many students and staff who have lived in other countries. Some have migrated to the UK from their country of birth; others have migrated back to the UK after living abroad for an extended period. We asked our teachers to tell us about their experiences so we can learn more about the impact of migration and how our place of birth shapes our identity.
"I think if you've lived somewhere else you know what it feels like to be an outsider."
"Migration definitely changes your mindset"
"Extend a hand of friendship to people."
"Try and keep your other culture alive within you."
"Education makes us more open to difference."
