REACTION is coming in this morning after last night’s fire at Stafford School in Eastbourne.

The school, run by Roselands and Stafford Federation, has said: “Thank you everyone for the kind messages. We will keep you updated.

“Your messages mean the world as we stand here waiting. Thank you.”

Head Kyra Siddall-Ward said: “We are obviously devastated about the damage to our beautiful school.”

Josh Babarinde OBE posted: “This is devastating to hear! My old stomping ground during my Junior School days. Of there’s anything we can do, please let us know.”
