Budding sporting stars at Worle School Academy in Weston were honoured to have received a variety of awards in a glittery Oscar-style evening.

Pomp and ceremony took over the night as the students' sporting achievements were awarded with trophies and special speeches from coaches, teachers and professional cricket and rugby players.

Prizes were presented by special guests professional cricketer Sophie Luff, and professional rugby player - and ex-Worle student - Aaron Thompson who both gave speeches.

Sophie plays for Western Storm and Somerset while Aaron plays for the Bristol Bears.

Special awards went to students who had shown huge improvements throughout the year.
