An intelligent and articulate 14-year-old girl killed herself by taking an overdose of antidepressants after being bullied, an inquest heard.
Worcestershire Coroner's Court was told that Amy Rose Tipton took a fatal dose of dothiepin after leaving a note "saying goodbye" to her family and friends.
Recording a verdict of suicide, Worcestershire Coroner Victor Round declined to read out documents left by the teenager, who died last September, to protect her dignity.
Explaining his decision not to disclose details of the documents, which included diaries, Mr Round said: "It seems to me she [Amy] is entitled to her privacy."
The coroner described the fact that the inquest could not be held in private as unfortunate, adding: "It has to be done publicly and that's particularly hard for a 14-year-old."
But Mr Round stressed: "I am perfectly well aware that the family take the view that some part of this was bullying that she was suffering."
The hearing was told that Amy was confirmed dead at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital at 6.10pm on September 27 last year - about an hour after being found in a collapsed state in her bedroom.
Amy, from Spennells, Kidderminster, attended the town's King Charles I secondary school.
The inquest heard that she had told her mother shortly before she went to her bedroom that she did not want to attend school until she knew who was going to be in her class.
