Students have been unveiling a 30-foot wonder wall of wonderful sporting greats.

Three current currents of Worle Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset unveiled the collage designed to inspire students with the role models

Student Ashley Ozua is on the books of Bristol Rovers joined Izzy Blackhurst, the fastest 14-year-old female swimmer in Britain, and Mia Chillman who is a top performing county netballer.

The 30 foot collage has an array of heroes from across the sporting world. They were chosen for being role models to young people.

The collage is made up of top England cricketer Moeen Ali, teenage tennis Emma Raducanu and Sky Brown: the Olympic skateboarding medallist when aged only 13.

There is also English rugby union player Owen Farrell, Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton and Gold Medal Paralympian Ellie May Simmonds. 


Finally, England football manager Gareth Southgate is pictured along with England footballer Lucy Bronze and elite gymnast Max Whitlock.

Midfield footballer Ashley’s hero is Arsenal player Saka, while Izzy will soon be in the national championships, and Mia is at Bath Netball Athlete Development Centre

PE teacher Dan Jackson said: “These sports people were chosen for their character, diversity, and inspiration. They are role models for our students representing disabled sports, ethnic minorities and are well known to people.

“We also use these role models as part of our studies to inspire.”

The wall is just one of a series of huge improvements to the academy over the past five years since becoming part of The Priory Learning Trust.

The academy is passionate about outdoor pursuits and extra curricular work.
