It is with deep regret and sadness that Northfield School in Billingham has to announce the passing of one of its students in the early hours of Sunday 12th May. Chloe Kitching, who was in Year 10 at the school, died suddenly at home with her family by her side.
Chloe will be remembered with real affection and missed greatly by both her peers and the staff at the school. She was a popular member of the school community, and could be seen around school laughing and spending time with her friends. She had such a good relationship with her teachers that she always felt able to voice her opinions and contribute to lessons wholeheartedly. She was doing well in school and expected to pass her exams with good grades. Chloe loved cooking and had already planned out her future, going to college and then working in restaurants before fulfilling her dream of becoming a chef. Chloe was also a fully participating member of the local jazz band and loved music.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Chloe’s family at this time as we support both them and her friends at school through this difficult time.
