Waking up problems really effecting school and education

Patient : Hiya, I am an average 16 year old teenager. I go to bed around 10:00 pm and expect to wake up at 7:00 the following morning but cannot. I have 20 alarms every five minutes from 6:00am- 7:40am but I generally wake up around 9:00 am-12:00pm. my parents try everything to wake me up, even throwing cold water on my head, but I cannot remember any off it. please help me as I keep getting fines from my school because of my attendance. thank you :)
