It was with immense sadness and shock that our school community learnt today that one of our Year 13 students, Charlie Pitcher, had died on Tuesday evening. Charlie was a courteous, bright and determined young man with a very promising future ahead of him. He had secured excellent AS results and was a particularly gifted mathematician. He was also an extremely popular student with a large circle of friends; he will be very sorely missed.
Our deepest sympathy is extended to Charlie’s family and friends. Mrs Bryce and Mr Killeya have spent time with the family this morning and have offered any support required at this most difficult time.
A Book of Condolence will be set up in our 6th Form Day Room. Any Year 13 students or students who were in Year 13 last year are very welcome to come back into school to add their messages and memories of Charlie. The book will be given to Charlie’s family at the end of this term.
Support is available to any members of our school community who feel they require it at this tragic time. Please contact either Mr Skelton or Mrs Griffin in order to make the necessary arrangements.
