Our Learning Mentor, Mrs. Trippett, visited Headingley Stadium on 5 June to lay flowers and tribute messages from form 7BJC following the sad passing of Rob Burrow from Motor Neurone Disease. The students sent postcards with kind messages of support to Rob’s family.

The year 7 students had followed Rob’s story and his friendship with Kevin Sinfield since the beginning of the last academic year, looking at his battle with MND.  Students considered Rob Burrow’s resilience and courage, and the strength of his friendship with Kevin Sinfield in the face of adversity.

Thank you to our students for their messages of support for the Burrow family and to Mrs. Trippett for taking the trip on behalf of Tuxford Academy students.
