A pre-inquest hearing was held on the death of a teenager at an independent school in Buckinghamshire.

Caitlyn Scott-Lee, 16, was found dead at the prestigious Wycombe Abbey School for girls on April 21, where Ms Scott-Lee was a boarding pupil. 

A further hearing was held at Beaconsfield Coroner’s Court today (September 14).

Legal discussions took place between Senior Coroner Crispin Butler and legal representatives for Ms Scott-Lee’s family, the school and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.

Mr Butler said: “Ultimately, we all want the fullest understanding in a situation where we all understand we are putting together a reflection that wasn’t entirely visible to anyone, maybe not even to Caitlyn.

“It will never be a 100 percent picture.”

Mr Scott-Lee was represented by lawyer Dr Anton van Dellen, barrister Dominic Kay KC represented Wycombe Abbey School and Neil McLaughlin was present via a video link on behalf of the Oxford Health NHS Trust.

Mr Scott-Lee said: “Nothing any of us do here will bring Caitlyn back. I want to thank the court for all its participation.”

A further pre-inquest review will be held before a final hearing, which is expected to be held in the spring.
