Manchester Arena Attack - School Statement

Posted at 8:30 am on 25th May, 2017

Everyone at Wellacre is shocked and saddened by the events at the Manchester Arena and our thoughts and prayers are with all those involved, their families and their friends.
 
We can confirm that Salman Abedi attended Wellacre from September 2007. He left Wellacre in January 2009 when he was in Year 9 to continue his high school education at another school. As this is an ongoing police investigation, the school cannot provide any further information at this time.
 
As a school community we all feel the pain that this atrocity has bestowed upon Manchester and as a school we stand shoulder to shoulder with schools and communities up and down the country, against terrorism in its entirety. We are requesting that the media considers the impact that this incident is having on students, not only at Wellacre, but across the whole of Greater Manchester.

With this in mind, we respectfully ask for the media to permit the school to continue with its daily business, undisturbed.  Because of this there will be no further comments made by the school.
