The Principal of an academy school has thanked the public and emergency services for their help after a 14-year-old pupil was hit by a car.

A teenage boy was taken to St Mary's Hospital, in Paddington, after a collision in Church Road, at the junction with Parkfield Road, in Northolt, on Tuesday (March 14), just before 4pm.

He had multiple injuries, including those to his head and arm, but is now in a stable condition.

Gary Lobbett, the CEO and principal of Alec Reed Academy, in Bengarth Road, has since released a statement full of praise for the emergency services, fellow pupils and members of the public who assisted “quickly”.

He said: “Our thoughts are with the pupil and with his family; we all wish him a speedy recovery.

“We would like to thank the emergency services for their quick response, which included the Air Ambulance, and for ensuring that the pupil received the best possible medical attention at the scene.

“Local residents were also very helpful in reporting the accident promptly and providing support to the pupil before the emergency services arrived. Thank you also to members of staff who were able to support the police at the location of the accident.”
