Georgina was in her second year at Runshaw College in Leyland and had been accepted into Edge Hill University before she attended the Ariana Grade concert at the Manchester Arena.

Posting in the days following the tragedy, her former school said: “Georgina was a lovely young student who was very popular with her peers and the staff and always made the most of the opportunities she had at the school.”
