South Yorkshire South East NHP said: “These bikes will now need to be replaced, at some considerable cost to the School. This money could have been used to pay for books/laptops that would assist in the education of the pupils.”

If anyone has any information regarding this theft, get in touch with the police on 101 quoting the reference 8312/8091 or speak to a member of the teaching staff.
