Headteacher Michael Lee said: “We said prayers for Ann Maguire and for the school community at Corpus Christi.

“We have some connection with the school. I have written to the head of the school expressing our condolences.”

Speaking of his shock at the manner of Mrs Maguire’s death, Mr Lee added: “It is just a horrifying and tragic incident.

“Fortunately, something like this is very rare in schools, but it is such a tragedy for somebody to go to work on a morning and not make it home in the evening.
