Principal Pat Brennan-Barrett said: “We are devastated to hear of the death of our former student India Chipchase. India was an extremely popular, hard-working student during her time at Northampton College, where she studied Health & Social Care. Our thoughts go out to all her friends and family at this time.”

During her time at college she attended two placements, one in an elderly care setting and one in a childcare setting. India received praise from her placement supervisors for her ability to work within a team, her use of initiative and for the sensitive way she interacted with the clients and children.

India’s former lecturer, Jo Forester, added: “Within college she was a well-liked member of her group by both staff and students for her caring nature and sense of humour. She was a hardworking, intelligent young lady who possessed the maturity to complete all the targets she set herself regarding her college work and placement experiences.”
