Year 11 leavers day at Worle Community School.


IF YOU saw an oompa loompa walking the streets of Worle recently your eyes were not deceiving you – one secondary school was being invaded by a range of popular characters.

Avatars, Harry Potter characters and other fancy dress creations were all on show at Worle Community School this week.

Year 11 pupils at the school were saying goodbye to teachers and fellow students at the school’s colourful leavers celebration.

The students got to mark saying goodbye to their GCSE exams by taking their school uniform off for the last time and replacing it with some more creative fancy dress attire.

Many students showed up as characters from their favourite stage shows, Hollywood films, TV shows or books.

Magical creatures from Alice In Wonderland, an array of well-known superheroes, Pirates Of The Caribbean characters, two Bananas In Pyjamas and more creative costumes roamed the corridors.
