It is with deep regret that we must inform you that one of our teaching staff from The Fallibroome Academy (Ms Smith – Languages) passed away last Friday night.

Ms Smith has been ill with cancer for that last few months and she and her family knew that she only had a limited time left with us. Nevertheless, this is a huge shock to everyone at Fallibroome Academy and The Fallibroome Trust, not least because Claire was such an energetic, upbeat and kind person. Ms Smith had a magical ability to set the highest standards for her students in everything they did while being positive, encouraging and helpful at all times. Her colleagues and students at Fallibroome are devastated by this news. It seems to us that we have lost one of our best and most loved members of staff.
