His sudden death has left his family, friends and wider school community in shock.

 

Lynn Wilson, his grandmother, said: “He was a gorgeous boy. He knew everything.

 

“He was so much fun and he had so much character. He was perfect.

 

“He loved everything about life. I can’t think how we are going to live without him. We are going to have to get though this together.”

“He was scrunching up his hair the way he always did to make it as big as he could. Half an hour later we got a call from the school to say he had collapsed. We didn’t know what had happened but then there was no coming back.”

 

The cause of death is not yet known.
