Dear friends,

We are very sorry to announce the news that A’liya Lulat, a Mathematics trainee from our 2017–18 cohort, has passed away this week. A’liya was 26 years old. Our thoughts are with all of A’liya’s family and friends at this time.

Siân Morgan was A’liya’s PGCE tutor at the university. Siân and the other members of the Maths course team have written the following:

“A’liya was an incredibly committed, hardworking mathematics teacher and a much-loved member of the maths PGCE at the University of Manchester. Whilst studying with us in 2017-18, she enjoyed her placements at both Tauheedal Islam Girls’ High School and Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School (QEGS) and gained her first teaching post at Pleckgate High school in Blackburn. A’liya loved her family, always talking about them, and had a passion for helping others in her classes, community and beyond. A’liya’s family have set up a gofundme page to build a mosque in her honour. If you wish to contribute, the link is below:


We send our love to A’liya’s family and friends and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.

Rosa, Siân and David
