QUEEN’S songs rang throughout a Worle school as pupils performed in the popular show We Will Rock You.

The pupils of Priory Community School donned wigs, tutus and leathers, ready to perform to friends and family.

The Queensway school’s band Interlude lead hundreds of students and their parents into a two-hour performance of the musical over three nights.

The cast of 30 students have been rehearsing for months and head of drama, Jessica Hall, said: “The West End version of the show is coming to an end this summer, so it is very apt that we performed it.

“We have students as the lighting designers and directors, and the production has been very student-led.

“The whole school has really got behind the show and the amount of support we have had has been fantastic.”
