I am writing to you with the very sad news that one of our Year 9 students died last night. At the time of writing, the student’s name has not been released by the police, although I am aware that
he has been named locally. He was a popular and well-liked student and news of his loss has come as a great shock to staff and students alike, as we have arrived at College this morning.
He will be missed by all in our school community. We are receiving support from the local authority and other specialist services to ensure that, everyone who needs it, is given the necessary help
today and in the coming days.
I am sure that your thoughts will be with his family and friends today.
