Sad News Announcement
We are sorry to have to announce that, very sadly, one of our Year 10 students, who has been ill and in hospital for some time, passed away on Friday.
Madison's parents would like the school community to be informed but have asked for privacy at this time and donations to MIND. Donations can be handed in to school or made directly to the charity. There will be assemblies for all students on Monday morning. The memorial garden, near reception, will be open from 8am for flowers or appropriate items to be placed in memory of Madison; a lovely girl who will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.
Staff and trained counsellors will be available on Monday for any student requiring support.
Any parent who may be concerned about their child's mental health should speak to school staff.
YoungMinds is a charity organisation able to provide professional help and support and can be contacted via their website or by telephone on 0808 802 5544. The Samaritans and MIND can also be contacted for crisis and mental health support and information.
