Lord Levy, who unveiled a memorial plaque and commemorative tree, paid tribute to Mrs Pinter as an “inspirational and dedicated leader”.

Dayan Berger spoke about Mrs Pinter’s dedication to the school, telling the crowd she would affectionately refer to all the students as “my girls”.

He added: “Mrs Pinter realised one size doesn’t fit all. It is not about students achieving the best grades. She understood that providing a student works hard and honestly, they can be proud.”
