In wonderful autumnal sunshine, Worle Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, showed off their brilliant students, staff and large, outstanding campus at their annual open evening.

Visitors were able to enjoy a range of fun activities across the academy, listen to superb singers and music players, watch costumed teachers teach history, and enjoy excellent free food and hospitality at their excellent, spacious Restaurant.

There was also a range of activities to enjoy including Jill Dando story writing, science experiments, keyring making, music, trampolining and football.

The ambitious academy is part of the high-achieving The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT). 

Since becoming part of TPLT in 2016, the academy has seen many campus improvements including a £400,000 refurbished auditorium and sports hall.

Principal Jacqui Scott said: “It was wonderful to meet so many pupils with their parents and carers.

“It was a brilliant evening – these are very exciting times for our Academy.”

The academy has a wonderful caring and high achieving ethos, excellent extracurricular provision including the Jill Dando News Centre and the groundbreaking eco-club Climate Justice Revolution.

The WCSA motto is ‘We Challenge and Support to Achieve’, resulting in students who thrive in all areas.
