The schoolgirl killed crossing the road last night was 12-year-old Neesha-Leigh Dundon.
The Year 8 pupil at Stantonbury Campus is believed to have been on her way home from school when she was knocked down on V8 Marlborough Street, near Netherfield.
Stantonbury Campus is due to release a full statement later today, but a spokesman told the Citizen they were offering counselling to students where needed.
Although no plans have yet been put in place, staff at Stantonbury Campus are planning to commemorate Neesha-Leigh.
