Amanda Harrison revealed the ...heartache... of the pupils and staff after hearing the news.

According to North Wales Live, she said: ...Our thoughts go immediately to members of this learner’s family, and words cannot adequately express the shock and pain which has stricken them.

“I have spoken with Dad, and, even as a parent myself, cannot begin to express the utter heartbreak felt.

...As a school community we will gradually now begin to process this information and our sense of loss will be palpable over the coming days I am certain.

...Grief can manifest itself in many ways, and over a long period of time....

Mrs Harrison said the school will offer professional support to pupils who feel they need it.
