Teenager found dead at private school
Teenager Caitlyn Scott-Lee has been found dead at Wycombe Abbey School, an independent girls’ boarding and day school in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire,
The year 11 schoolgirl was found in a wooded area near a playing field at the £44,000-a-year school, weeks before she was to sit her GCSE exams.
Her parents, senior HSBC banker Jonathan Scott-Lee and his chartered accountant wife Tara, were abroad at the time and have now flown into Britain.
In an email to parents in Caitlyn’s year, known as Upper V, headmistress Jo Duncan said: “They are a close year group and, as you will understand, they are very shocked and upset.
“It is an extremely difficult time for everyone and we will do our utmost to provide the additional pastoral care the girls will need.”
Duncan ended the letter with: “I am sure that you will join me and everyone at Wycombe Abbey in sending our deepest sympathies to Caitlyn’s parents, siblings and wider family who are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time.”
