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.
