We are immensely shocked and saddened by the news of the death of Emma Pattison and her daughter Lettie. Our thoughts are with their family at this time, as well as everyone at Croydon High School, and Epsom College, which Emma joined as Head in September 2022.
Emma was a much loved and respected member of the GDST community, as well as a talented Head and teacher and a dear friend to many of us. She touched the lives of all of us with her energy, wisdom and kindness during her six years as Head of Croydon High School and the school will always bear the legacy of her inspiring leadership.
We are taking time to support staff and students at Croydon High School as well as everyone in the GDST family, and their wellbeing will be our priority in the coming days.
