Tribute to Jordan Veira

The Furze Platt Senior School community are deeply saddened to learn of the death of one of our students, Jordan Veira. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this sad time.

Jordan was a pleasure to have as one of our Furze Platt Senior School students. He was often humorous ​​and entertained many of his peers and staff. Anna Bradley, his tutor, fondly remembers how “Jordan approached everything with a relaxed and chilled out attitude. He was a popular boy who was a very loyal friend to many. He filled the room with a charming wit and sense of fun.” 

In conversation, Jordan exuded vibrancy and energy. His eyes sparkled as he engaged with students or staff whether in educational discussion or was simply having a laugh. He had an incredibly warm character to which staff and his peers responded with genuine affection. 

Our school community mourn for a young man who has died far too young. Jordan had so much yet to offer. We intend to hold memorial events over the forthcoming days and weeks so we can remember Jordan. Our pastoral staff and counsellors will be supporting staff and students as they come to terms with the news. 

Above everything else, our community is thinking of Jordan’s family and friends. We send them every condolence at this sad time.
