Welcome to the Robertsbridge Community College Website

Adam Yellowlees 1996 - 2014

The College community were saddened and shocked to hear of the tragic passing away of Adam Yellowlees on Saturday 5 July 2014. Adam was a delightful student, who left the College in June 2012. He was respected by staff and students alike and will always be remembered for his gentle nature and infectious smile. Our condolences and best wishes go to Adam’s family at this difficult time.

A tribute to Adam was written by Ms Thompson and students from his learning mentor group.

Adam Yellowlees – a tribute from MLT – Adam’s old learning mentor group

The first thing everyone in the form always remembers about Adam (apart from the height!!) is that he was always smiling and was always friendly. Although he could be a quiet young man, Adam was very funny and the boys in particular in our form really enjoyed his humour and his easy going ways. He was such a friendly and approachable student that I would often find Adam in his usual corner chair with younger students at all the nearby desks. They would choose to sit near him and often sought him out to enjoy his company. As his Learning Mentor I found Adam to always to be good humoured, amiable and he had the most engaging warm smile. We all spent a lot of time with Adam and his inseparable buddy, Reece, in the Christmas of 2011 when Adam was in Year 11. As this was to be his final Christmas as part of MLT, Adam wanted to make more contribution than ever to the form’s entry into the Christmas decoration competition. We would all work together every lunch time stringing up thousands of cotton wool balls as fake falling snow and Adam would effortlessly stroll around and pin them up on the ceiling for us. He enjoyed his role as Champion Snow Ball Hanger! In his quiet and understated way Adam would keep an eye on the younger boys as they too tried to join him and scrambled up onto tables to try to reach the ceiling and when disaster loomed he would intervene and take over just to keep them safe. No one told Adam to do this – he was just our Big Friendly Giant.

Adam was a genuinely charming and engaging young man and he was a pleasure to have in the form. He was very laid back and when I would be dancing up and down to try to get his Graphics coursework up to date, Adam would smile at me with good humoured tolerance and then go his own way! He was always unhurried and unflappable even when deadlines loomed! He rarely asked for help in class and throughout all his reports from Year 7 to Year 11 his teachers would comment on his positive attitude and the way in which he was gaining confidence.

I asked the form to think of words they would associate with Adam. ‘Funny and friendly’ were the words chosen by several of them. But as everyone said ‘he was always smiling’ and that is the lovely memory of a lovely young man we were privileged to have in our form.

We have published our offer to children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities.
