A student and two adults were believed to have been stabbed with a “sharp object” amid the horror.

Cops said the trio was raced to hospital and the school confirmed it had gone into lockdown.

A teen, 17, has since been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

South Yorkshire Police said: “Officers are at the scene after responding to reports of an incident involving a sharp object at the school on Birley Lane at around 8.50am.

“Two adults have been taken to hospital with minor injuries to be checked over.

“A child is also being checked over in hospital after being assaulted.

“A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and remains in police custody.”

They said police will remain at the Sheffield school for the remainder of the day.

Birley Community College headteacher Vicky Hall sent out an email to parents in the wake of the alleged attack.

She wrote: “There has been an incident in school this morning.

“I want to reassure you that all staff and students are safe and well.

“Emergeny services attended immediately and are in attendance.

“All staff and students are safe. I will update you on next steps as soon as I am given guidance from the police.

“Please do not attend school at the moment.

“Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.”

It comes just days after a Welsh school was thrown into lockdown when a schoolgirl stabbed two teachers and a pupil.

A 13-year-old was charged with attempted murder on Thursday after last week’s attack.

Two teachers and a schoolgirl were slashed in the playground of Amman Valley School in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, on Wednesday last week.

The chaos ended after hero teacher Darrel Campbell grabbed the teenage girl and put her in an arm lock.

Police later swooped on the school and arrested the 13-year-old suspect.

She has now been charged with three counts of attempted murder.

Head of Year Fiona Elias, Liz Hopkin and another schoolgirl were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Mrs Hopkin, 53, who works with special needs students, was stabbed four times.

She is “quite seriously hurt” but has since been discharged from hospital, her husband John said.

Dyfed-Powys Police said on Thursday the child victim, as well as Ms Elias, have also been discharged from hospital.

Then, on Friday, a second Welsh school went into “partial” lockdown after “threatening messages” were sent out.

Gwent Police confirmed that Ebbw Fawr Learning Community secondary campus was shut down.

Cops rushed to the scene and arrested a teenage boy on suspicion of making threats.
