Pupils lay flowers outside school after teacher's sudden classroom death
Children at Chessington Community College are being offered a psychologist following the sudden death of a teacher at the school.
Headteacher Rob Niedermaier-Reed has written to parents about possible support and guidance for children following the death of a respected IT and chemistry teacher on Tuesday.
Doctor Jim Gill suffered a cardiac arrest in the school building on Tuesday morning in front of students.
London Ambulance were called but were unable to resuscitate him.
Flowers and messages have been left outside the school gates in memory of Mr Gill by students, staff and friends.
The school, which was closed for two days, will reopen on Thursday.
Mr Niedermaier-Reed said in a statement on the school website: "Our heartfelt thanks go to all members of the community who have left flowers, tributes and messages for Dr Gill.
"We are collating the cards and messages in a memory box.
"All members of the community are invited to contribute to this memory box which will be located at the front reception."
A psychologist will be at the school on Thursday and Friday to talk to students.
