The East of England Ambulance Service was called to an address in High Street shortly after 10.30pm following reports that a girl, identified locally as Pasha Clark, had suddenly collapsed and was unresponsive.
Despite the best efforts of emergency crews, however, the teenager, thought to be 15, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance was also called.
A spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of all those at the scene, the patient was declared deceased. Our thoughts are with their family and friends at this sad and difficult time.”
Cambridgeshire police were also called and arrived at 10.45pm.
A spokesman for the force said that an investigation was carried out by officers who determined that there was no foul play involved.
He said: “The death is not being treated as suspicious and has been passed to the coroner.”
Pasha, who was a student at Soham Village College, was described by principal, Dr Carin Taylor, as a “bright” student with a passion for art.
Paying tribute, she said: “We were very sad to hear of the loss of Pasha Clark. Pasha was a year 11 student at Soham Village College, a bright individual who was particularly passionate about art. Our thoughts are with Pasha’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”
