University to hold moment's silence for former Desborough pupil, 18
A moment's silence will be held at Bath Spa Uni tomorrow in memory of former Desborough School pupil Adam Blissett, 18

A moment's silence is set to be held tomorrow to remember a former pupil of Desborough College in Maidenhead who died at Bath Spa University.

Staff and students who knew Adam Blissett will gather at the university's Italian Garden at 11.55am and the silence will take place at 12pm.

The 18-year-old was found dead in his halls of residence on Wednesday.

In an email sent to students, the university's vice-chancellor Christina Slade said: "I know that all our sympathy and sincere condolences are with Adam's family at this terribly sad time."

Its Student Services team is offering support to anyone at Bath Spa who knew the teenager, who was in the first year of a business and management degree.

The cause of his death is not yet known.

Tributes to Adam have been building up on the Advertiser website.

One, left by Sam Taylor, said: "So many people will say it, because it's so true, that he didn't have one bad thing about him. He was great fun to be around and lovely company. He will be sorely missed from all the Desborough boys."
