Our thoughts are with Jo Cox’s family, friends and those who worked closely with her at this very difficult and sad time.

All of the tributes are a testament to what an outstanding MP she was.

Jo was also very supportive of our parliamentary placement scheme, getting in touch with the School soon after her election in 2015. She offered extraordinary energy, passion and kindness in her support to the student who spent time on placement with her earlier this year, and staff had been looking forward to working with her in the future.
