Wimbledon: Study Prep incident

Study Prep – in our thoughts

Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the devastating tragedy at The Study Prep School.

Lucy Kane, publisher of Time & Leisure, said: “As a parent of young children I was deeply shocked at the tragic incident at The Study, my heart immediately went out to all the parents and children involved and the school community. The Study is a wonderful school in the heart of our community and this incident will have huge impact. The children and families involved are in our thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time.”

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “The incident is absolutely devastating. My heart goes out to everyone affected.”

Adrian Mills, chair of the Wimbledon Village Business Association said: “My heart goes out to them at this dreadful time and I am sure all of the local community as well everyone in the country are sending love and prayers to all involved in this horrendous incident.” Adrian’s daughter Christina was once a pupil at the school and Adrian recently supported a charity event there. “She spent some of the happiest days of her life at The Study and I was pleased to host their charity fundraising event last year where I met many of the parents. It is a fantastic school and wonderful pupils.”

Said Councillor Ross Garrod, leader, London Borough of Merton: “The thoughts of all of us at the council are with everyone affected by this devastating incident. Council staff have been on the scene throughout the day working alongside the emergency services and will continue to do so.

“Our priority over the coming hours and days will be to keep supporting the school and this incredibly tight-knit community. We will provide further updates as soon as we can.”
