Char­lie Richardson

It is with great sad­ness that we have learnt of the death of one of our year 10 stu­dents, Char­lie Richard­son, who died this week­end fol­low­ing a road traf­fic acci­dent on Fri­day night.

Char­lie was a very impor­tant, much loved mem­ber of our school fam­ily and we are dev­as­tated by this tragic loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his fam­ily at this dread­ful time. Char­lie was a witty, lively, charm­ing boy who always had a huge smile on his face. He was also some­one who had those extra spe­cial human attrib­utes – he was kind, gen­er­ous and com­pletely loyal. We are all going to miss him dread­fully – his death is a huge loss to our whole school.

We had a whole school assem­bly this morn­ing with all stu­dents and staff – it was very impor­tant for us all to come together as a com­mu­nity to share our immense sor­row and grief.

We will be hold­ing a Cel­e­bra­tion of Life assem­bly for Char­lie in school and we will also be col­lect­ing money so that we can ded­i­cate some last­ing memo­r­ial in King Ethel­bert so that Char­lie will always be remem­bered by us all.
