Staff, students and everyone connected with the academy were saddened to hear the news that Julia passed away on 1st May after a year long fight against cancer. Julia had been our Key Stage 3 Pastoral Leader since 2007. She joined the school in 2000 as a lunchtime supervisor and then became a teaching assistant. In all three roles she was completely committed to the well-being of our students. Her approach was finely judged depending on who she was dealing with and what their issues were. She could be no nonsense when required but equally tender and caring. She went about her work with incredible positivity. She had a great sense of humour. Countless students have benefited from her support and counselling as have some parents. Julia gave her time freely and supported many activities that benefited students away from the classroom. She regularly ‘went the extra mile’. We will all miss Julia’s bright, happy and outgoing personality.

Everyone in the school community send our condolences to Julia’s family and friends.
