STUDENTS at a Hampshire school have been left devastated after their showcase to raise money for London and Manchester terror victims was cancelled due to a break-in.

On Tuesday night, burglars broke into Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill in an attempt to steal school property.

Due to the incident, the school was forced to close, with the exception of the Year 11 students sitting their Dance, Health and Social Care and Humanities GCSE’s.

Deputy head girl, Lucy Allen was set to hold a charity showcase at the school yesterday to raise money for the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London – which had to be cancelled.

The 15-year-old said: “It took a lot of time and effort to organise. I stayed after school every day for a month getting it ready.

“I was absolutely devastated because it feels like all of my hard work has gone down the drain.”

15 music students were set to perform at the event.

Phil Humphreys, executive principal of Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill, said: “I can confirm that there was a break-in at the academy last night that has caused damage to our facilities.

“In order for the police to conduct their investigation and to repair the damage caused, we have regrettably had to close the academy today, with the exception of those Year 11 students who are sitting external examinations.

After the break-in, the burglars damaged items around the school in an attempt to steal them, however it is unknown if anything was actually stolen.

The school hopes to reschedule the event – which already had more than 250 people set to attend – in the upcoming weeks .

“I don’t understand why they had to do it, it has made everything so much more difficult,” added Lucy.

A spokesperson from Hampshire Police said: “We were called at 2.24am to reports of a burglary at the Oasis Academy Lordshill.

“Investigations are ongoing.”
