Dylan Crossley was in Year 11 at All Hallows

The school attended by a teenager who died following a crash near Penwortham on Friday night has been paying tribute.


All Hallows Catholic High School was attended by Dylan Crossey, 15.

Dylan died in hospital on Saturday from head injuries sustained when the bike he was riding collided with a BMW in Chainhouse Lane.

A statement from the school described the tributes made by fellow pupils and the grief felt.

The Penwortham school said: “Everyone at All Hallows has been stunned to learn of the tragic death of one of our much loved Year 11 pupils Dylan Crossey. We have remembered Dylan today at special assemblies and we have opened a book of condolence which will be completed during the course of this week.

“The first pupil to write in the book was Dylan’s sister Jessica who spent the day with us in school being comforted by staff and by her friends. At lunch time today (Monday), many pupils gathered outside the chapel to release balloons in memory of Dylan.

“The foyer of the school has become a shrine to Dylan and the focal point of pupils remembering their friend.

“We have been in contact with Dylan’s family to assure them that they will all be in our thoughts and prayers at this terrible time.”
