In a statement on its website the school said it was "devastated by the sudden death of a sixth form student".

The school says it is supporting the student’s family and "their thoughts and prayers are with his family and many friends".

On Tuesday 12th July a party of twenty-one students and eight staff left for Spain, says the school, where they began a "cycling pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Western Spain".

The journey is 560 miles - and in a letter to parents the school said pupils and staff would be averaging between fifty and sixty miles a day.

The cycle was also raising money for charity.
