Nathan Brown, aged 19, fell and suffered a cardiac arrest at Shawclough trading estate in Rochdale at 11am on September 4.
The air ambulance was called but he died a short time later.
Charlie Deane, Bury College principal, said: “This is sad news and a tragic loss.
“Our thoughts are with Nathan’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”
Mr Brown’s family also paid tribute to him. In a statement, they said: “Nathan was a loved son, brother, uncle, grandson and a close friend to many who are all distraught at the news of his death.
“At only 19 years old our cheeky, happy boy has left a big void which can never be filled.

“He was a bright, happy-go-lucky young man who loved life and lived it to the fullest.
“He brought joy and laughter to everyone he met and left a lasting impression.”
