Tragic News – Eliza Bill, Year 11
It was with the greatest sadness that we have been informed of the tragic death of Eliza Bill, year 11, in a road traffic accident on Monday evening. We understand that another St George’s student was also injured in the incident but her injuries are not thought to be serious. The staff, students and governors of St George’s Academy would like to pass on their sincere condolences to Eliza’s family and friends.
Eliza was a quiet, warm and kind hearted student who was always willing to support her friends. She had recently expressed a desire to continue her studies in the sixth form and her ultimate ambition was to become a teaching assistant. We have provided an outside space for any floral or other tributes, opened a book of condolence in our main library on the Sleaford campus and have suspended year 11 mock examinations across the whole academy on Tuesday and today as a mark of respect. Students and staff also have access to counselling services at this difficult time.
Principal, St Georges Academy.
