“We are utterly heartbroken at the news another of our pupils, Nuria Sajjad, has died in hospital following the horrifying incident at our school which has already claimed the life of her schoolmate, Selena Lau.

It struck at the very heart of our community and we are still struggling to come to terms with the shock and grief left in its wake.

July the 6th had been eagerly anticipated, a happy occasion with parents, pupils and staff gathering in the sunshine at Wilberforce House to mark the end of the summer term. It suddenly turned to tragedy and the pain now being felt by the girls’ bereaved families is unimaginable.

We will continue to do everything we can to support them, the families of those others who were injured and the wider school community.”
