Beautiful floral tributes have been left at the Stevenage school of 18-year-old Kajetan Migdal who was killed in an attack last Friday.
The year 13 student at The John Henry Newman Catholic School died following an incident on Cuttys Lane on Friday (May 27).
Police, who have launched a murder investigation, say the incident took place at around 11.20pm.
Kajetan was taken to Lister Hospital but died from his injuries in the early hours of Saturday (May 28).
A teenager has been arrested as part of the ongoing police investigation.
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.”
Headteacher Clive Mathew said: “The loving nature of the school and the wider community, means that all will work together to support those affected to the best of our ability over the coming days, weeks and years.
“We will use this heart-breaking event to redouble our efforts to work with parents and parishes to form young people willing and capable of going out into the world to make it a better place, a place where such a terrible event becomes much less likely.”
