Haughton Academy – Statement 8th July 2024

It is with deep sadness that we write to you today following the tragic death of one of Haughton Academy’s pupils.

You may have seen in the media and on social media that Scarlett Vickers (Year 9) sadly died at home on Friday.

Scarlett was a lovely girl and an important member of the Haughton Academy community. She was always immaculately turned out, respectful and polite. A very friendly girl, with a great sense of humour, she was popular with her friends and will be greatly missed by everyone at school.

Staff and pupils at Haughton Academy and the Education Village Academy Trust are extremely saddened by the news and we would like to pass on our thoughts to everyone affected by this tragedy. The Trust is working hard to support pupils and staff through this very difficult time.

Families have requested to be allowed to lay flowers as a tribute to Scarlett so we have set aside a memorial space in the Village Green, within the main school site. We ask that flowers are either left by parents and guardians with main Reception or brought to school by pupils.

This is a very difficult time for us all but we know we can get through it by coming together as a strong community and by remembering Scarlett in our own ways.
