The head of a Lynn school has this afternoon paid tribute to one of its students, who was killed in a road collision earlier this month.

Aylisha Cain, who was 17, died in an incident on the A1065 at West Lexham on July 8.

Today, Aylisha’s family released a picture of her, through Norfolk Police, which coincided with a tribute from the King Edward VII Academy, where she was a pupil.

Principal Craig Morrison said: “Staff and students at King Edward VII Academy would like to express their deepest sadness and sympathies on hearing confirmation that Aylisha Cain was tragically lost to us last Friday, 8 July.

“Aylisha was a very intelligent, warm and generous person. She came to us from Litcham School having done incredibly well in her GCSEs.

“She was studying maths, biology, physics and Spanish with a view to studying medicine at the UEA in future.

“She constantly strived to do the very best she could and was committed to being involved in a wide range of activities. She would no doubt have gone on to do many more great things and those who knew her well will hold her close in their memories.

“For now, our thoughts remain with her family and particularly with her mother who was also injured.”

An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned last week.
