One of our students has sadly died from Covid-19

To Parents and carers, from the CEO Elaine Colquhoun.

On March 18th I wrote to say that we had our first confirmed case of Covid-19 in the academy.

I am very deeply saddened to have to tell you that this same student has died of the virus. We are all deeply shocked.

Our thoughts are with student the family and friends at this extraordinarily difficult time. The family have  requested privacy and so we will not be releasing any more details.

All students and staff who came in close contact with the student self-isolated and they remain well. All schools within our academy remain closed.

We will of course hold a remembrance service in school for the student and their family in the future when we are back together as an academy community.

Regards Elaine
