The death of a teenager last week is not being treated as suspicious.

Morgan Falconer, a 15 year old pupil at Sandringham School in Marshalswick, was found dead in the early hours of Tuesday (5).

He died at an address at The Ridgeway, Cuffley, and police, who were called at 4.15am, are treating his death as unsuspicious.

Headteacher Alan Gray said: “Morgan was a popular and highly motivated student who focused on his studies and excelled in many of them. He was also a very humble person and a good friend to many at the school.

“He would often make friends and classmates laugh with his quirky comments and students felt that Morgan supported them in many ways. If students felt low or that they were struggling for whatever reason, Morgan would always find a way to raise their spirits.”

Morgan’s family said that he intended to continue into sixth form.

Mr Gray added:: “We will miss Morgan dearly and our thoughts are with his family, friends and classmates at this tragic time.”

An investigation into Morgan’s death has been opened.
