His form tutor of many years, Miss Heasman, lead the school’s tributes.  

“I had the pleasure of being Kajetan’s form tutor from year 8-11 and during this time he was always loving life with the enjoyment of his dance and his many friends,” she said.   

“His exuberant personality made him popular with the year group and Kajetan could always make me smile and laugh.”
