Tributes have been paid to a pupil who died suddenly after collapsing at his school in White City .
Year 12 Hammersmith Academy pupil Frank Moylett was taken to Charing Cross Hospital on January 18, but died on Saturday (January 28).
The school, in Cathnor Road, has paid tribute to the 16-year-old, while his friends have taken to social media to express their shock and sadness.
A spokesman for Hammersmith Academy said the cause of the death is currently unknown.
Frank was a founding member of the school, joining Year Seven when the school launched in 2011.
The school's headteacher, Gary Kynaston , said: “We’re highly shocked. But pupils are dealing with it fantastically well.
“They’re dealing with it with great courage and poise and maturity.
“He was one of the first 11-year-olds to come through the door, and he has grown up through the school and contributed to it being the place it is.
“There is a strong bond among the founding students. There is a real sense of loss."
But he added there is also a sense of celebrating Frank’s life, with photographs and personal messages being left at the school and a book of condolence at the reception.
Year 12 students were told at an assembly on Monday January 30, while pupils in other year groups were told by their tutors.
Mr Kynaston said additional counselling is being provided for his closest friends, and that the school is now learning things about Frank which had not been widely known, such as the support, help and advise he would offer younger Hammersmith Academy pupils.
The teen had ambitions of becoming a doctor or anaesthetist, and had a passion for all things theatre and media, which showed off his talents, the school said.
The school spokesman added: “We have lost a thoughtful and kind young man with a bright future ahead of him.
"His memory will live long in the heart of the Academy and in those whose lives he touched.
"He will be sorely missed by his friends, colleagues and staff. Our thoughts are with his family at this tragic time.”
The school plans to organise a celebration of Frank’s life and hold a memorial for him.
