Hannah, of Priory Community School Academy, in Weston super Mare, Somerset has excelled with a top achievement in netball.

She has got into the Nova Netball academy for the Severn Stars development squad.

Severn Stars currently runs Nova Academies for Under 17s in educational centres across the West Midlands and South West region, including in Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Gloucestershire and Shropshire.

PE teacher Courtenay Gadd said: “Hannah is a lovely and respectable student.

“She has been dedicated her time to a lot of different sports since joining Priory, representing in most of the school sports teams.

“As she has entered Key Stage 4 Hannah has also given up lots of her time to help us with umpiring netball matches as well as helping set up primary school events that we have held.

“Not only has Hannah had lots of sporting success she has also achieved some of the highest grades in her recent Sport studies, Statistics and RE exams.”

The aim is to engage with the surrounding area and develop a pool of young talent.

Each education centre that hosts a Nova Academy, provides talented Under 17 players with weekly training sessions, strength and conditioning programmes and provision, high level technical training, as well as sports therapy and off-court support.
