Free breakfasts and activities were served up at a Worle secondary school.

Priory Community School, in Queensway, opened its doors to prospective students who are currently in year five and six at primary school.

Their parents were also welcomed along, to give them a chance to see the school and meet some of the staff.

As well as the food, children enjoyed circus arts, magic and fizz pop science.

They could view a tarantula and try out a bike-powered smoothie-maker.

A police van and stalls were also taken along and the school’s hedgehog mascot Percy PLT was on hand to take some selfies with the families.

Principal Jane McBride said: “It was lovely to see so many children and their parents, carers and grandparents at this event.”

Priory welcomed the highest number of children and parents to this month’s community breakfast, which takes place twice a year.
