It is more good news for 1500 students after their Principal won Head of the Year in prestigious awards.

Jacqui Scott, Principal of Worle Community School, scooped first prize in the category of Head Teacher of the Year in the Bristol Post Education Awards after a miracle school turnaround.

The school had previously been placed into special measures in May 2016.

Neville Coles, Executive Principal of The Priory Learning Trust, said: “Jacqui’s leadership to help make WCSA a vibrant learning community again has been truly inspirational.“

Jacqui said: “I’m lost for words. But, thank you to all the amazing students, staff and community of Worle Community School – Academy. This award is dedicated to them. It has been an amazing two years and I look forward to many more.“
