Quintin Kynaston Academy (QK), in Marlborough Road, issued a statement today following reports that brutal killer Jihadi John, who has been named as computing graduate Mohammed Emwazi who grew up on the Mozart Estate in Queen’s Park, was a former pupil.

A spokesman at Quintin Kynaston said: “There has been much press speculation in recent days concerning allegations about a former student Mohammed Emwazi, who left almost nine years ago.

“If the allegations are true we are all extremely shocked and sickened by the news.

“All members of staff at QK work very hard to support the education and wellbeing of our students and protect them from harm.

“In this respect, QK has been extremely proactive in working with the government’s Prevent strategy for a period of time and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.”

US newspaper the Washington Post unmasked Emwazi yesterday.

The 27-year-old lived on the Mozart Estate and is believed to have travelled to Syria in 2012 and later joined ISIS.
