A successful cream tea afternoon for prospective pupils, parents and carers has been held at a popular Academy.

Worle Community School Academy, part of the high-achieving The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT), in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, hosted the families with cream tea and refreshments at their outstanding Restaurant.

Its aim was to help answer any extra questions that they may have before making their final decision about their secondary school choice for their child.

Last month saw record visitors to their annual Open Evening, prompting the extra event for prospective students, parents and carers.

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, “We really enjoyed meeting so many of the pupils, parents and carers. The cream tea aspect also went down very well!”

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.
