The headteacher of Pembroke Comprehensive School says staff and pupils are 'deeply shocked and saddened' by the death of a 14-year-old pupil.
Derek Brundrett was found hanged in woodland on the school grounds yesterday.
He was a likeable and popular student with a group of close friends. He had a larger-than-life character and was loyal, gentle and caring. He will be much missed.
Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his family and friends. He is ever present in our thoughts.
We are trying to help students and staff come to terms with their loss through a series of special assemblies. We also have experienced counsellors and support workers available to talk to those who are most affected.
Around 1,294 pupils aged 11-18 attend the school, which serves the towns of Pembroke and Pembroke Dock.
