Record numbers visited a community school as it opened its doors to prospective students, their parents and carers.
In lovely summer weather, hundreds of people sampled the brilliant very large campus, excellent departments and facilities, as well as the amazing free food in the Restaurant.
Some 791 breakfast rolls were enjoyed alongside 300 cakes and 550 pastries, and over 500 cups of fruit juice.
Students were on hand to provide music, entertainment and to answer questions. Oscar, aged 13, known as DJ Bolt in his musical career, helped to provide the music.
Principal Mark Tidman said: “It was a fabulous morning and so good to meet so many prospective students and their families. We spoke to so many people and there was a great atmosphere.”
The music department had its doors open to any younger musicians who wanted to have a look around or enjoy sampling instruments such as the guitar, piano or drums. There were sporting activities taking place across the excellent sports department.
And Millard’s ice cream proved extremely popular, cooling the community down with a wide variety of flavours and types.
The staff of Puxton Park were also present, with animals from cuddly Guinea pigs to sleek snakes and millipedes.
Inside the restaurant, there were a large choice of activities, with slime making, face painting, decorating gingerbread men, and making crafty glasses.
Students from Jill Dando News centre also were recruiting for future good news reporters. BBC TV journalist Jill Dando was an ex student of WCSA and her memory and legacy is spreading good news from Worle to the World. The reporters showed off their letter from King Charles.
