Press Release - 28th September 2015

Staff and students at Minsthorpe Community College have been saddened by the news of the deaths of a number of young people from the local area in the early hours of Sunday morning. We know that death can be difficult for anyone to understand – especially when it is sudden – and we are now helping our young people come to terms with this event as they are likely to be confronted with a variety of emotions which might include shock, sadness, and confusion.

At Minsthorpe we care about the impact that this may have and are have put in place a variety of support mechanisms for students affected by this, or any issues, raised by this tragedy.

The College extends its deepest sympathy to the family, friends and to the entire community at this difficult time. We have been devastated by the news. We are part of a close-knit family, and this affects us all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this sad loss.
