A book full of Christmas stories written and published by Worle students reached one of the top spots in the Amazon charts.

Priory Community School students wrote Christmas Stories Volume 2, a collection of short stories and poems.

The first volume was a bestseller in the children’s Christmas bookchart last December, and the second book has done even better, finishing in second place on the list.

Encouraging students to publish their own work was the brainchild of previous Priory students Paul Brycock, who works in publishing, and James Wilmot, head of careers at Priory.

James said: “It was certainly a highlight of my own career seeing last year’s authors reach the top five Christmas stories chart.

“The quality of the story writing in volume two is even stronger this year and I am immensely proud to support our students to become published authors.”
