It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of Cameron Milton, a Year 13 pupil in the Boys’ Division of Bolton School. Cameron passed away yesterday in his sleep. Everyone in school has his friends and family in their thoughts at this difficult time.

Head of Boys’ Division, Mr Ford, said: ‘The whole of the Bolton School community is shocked and  saddened by the news of Cameron’s death. Cameron was a popular young man who fully participated in all areas of school life. He was a keen sportsman with a special love of rugby in which he represented the school and Bolton Rugby Club where he was known for his speed and power, earning the nickname of the “Exocet”.  Cameron will be deeply missed.’

Mr Hunt, Cameron's Form Teacher said: 'Cameron was a well-liked member of his form group and his loss is felt by all of the boys in his form. He was always polite, trustworthy and faced the many demands of school life with a minimum of fuss. It was a privilege to assist him with his university application, where he wished to pursue a degree course reflecting his love of sport.'

First XV rugby coach, Mr Joseph commented: 'Cameron was an energetic, talented and committed rugby player who exhibited all the qualities of a 1st XV player and deservedly was awarded colours for his contribution to school rugby over seven years.'

Cameron was a popular student and, after his A levels, was planning on studying Sports Management or Sports Coaching.

Flags are currently flying at half-mast in school, his Sixth Form peers are being supported and there was a poignant pre-match minute’s silence during this afternoon’s 1st XV’s rugby match.
