Zoya joined the school in the sixth form with an exemplary school record.
She has continued to achieve at a high academic standard and has a bright future ahead of her. She has firm friendships in the school and we are providing support as required to her friends and the wider school community.
We remain concerned about her safety and look forward to her return to school.
