It is with great sadness and regret that we must inform you of the loss of PC Ian Deering.

Ian joined our team in September 2022 and he worked tirelessly with our students, parents/carers and our pastoral team to ensure all our students received an outstanding level of care and support. He was a valuable member of our school community and contributed to assemblies and lessons to help educate our students around the dangers and concerns faced by many in our society. He was passionate about helping young people and was always available to offer advice and guidance when needed to our students.

He was a great colleague and friend to many of our staff and will be greatly missed by everyone who worked with him and by our whole school community. We are deeply shocked and saddened by his sudden passing and our heartfelt sympathy is with Ian’s family and friends. They are in our thoughts during this difficult and tragic time, and we thank Ian for the hard work and dedication he showed to our school during his time with us.
