To our school community,

It is with great sadness that we inform our school and wider community that one of our children, Olivia Campbell-Hardy, was a victim of the Manchester atrocity.

As a school community we are absolutely devastated and heartbroken at the news that Olivia has passed away. Our prayers and deepest sympathies go to her family and friends. Our thoughts also go out to the many families across the region affected by this tragedy.

Our school community is in shock, and together with Local Authority colleagues, we are giving them as much support as we can to help them through this terrible time.

Olivia was a delightful young girl in Year 10, and will be dearly missed.

The school will be considering with friends, staff and family in the coming weeks, the most fitting way to honour the memory of Olivia.

Olivia was accompanied to the event by her friend Adam and our thoughts are also very much with Adam, who suffered serious injuries in the attack and has undergone surgery. We will do everything possible to help him in his recovery. Our love and prayers are with them also at this time.

Mr Duffy
