Caitlyn previously attended the Hong Kong branch of the £44,000-a-year boarding school.

Her dad had written an article about the institution while the family was living abroad.

He wrote: "Caitlyn, has always had an affinity for the UK, and she had it in her own mind to really want to go to boarding school.

"We did extensive research from abroad and looked at the top boarding schools in the UK and Wycombe Abbey in the UK was a great fit for Caitlyn.

"However, it was Caitlyn’s exemplary work ethic and motivation that led to her eventually gain a place at Wycombe Abbey UK."

Wycombe Abbey was founded in 1896 and currently has 656 pupils with 591 boarders.

Notable alumni include actresses Sally Phillips and Rachael Stirling.

In 2019, the school was struck by separate tragedies when two pupils died.

A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: "Thames Valley Police was called to the Wycombe Abbey School at around 11.40pm on Friday after a 16-year-old girl was sadly found to have died.
