Students from Priory Community School and Worle Community School took part in the ACES National Finals in front of 1,000 spectators.

The amazing students from Priory Community School and Worle Community School performed brilliantly as Team Mendip Yellow Socks against Britain’s best in the ACES National Finals in front of 1,000 spectators.

The team went to the national finals representing the Bristol area to compete against the finest teams in the country.

They had previously won the Bristol Under-12 league for Mendip with five games in hand including an 11-0 win.

Ruby Johnson, aged 12, of WCSA joined PCSA students Ellis Boyce, Lilly Potter, Isabel Mullins, Isabel Powell, Katie Pavey, Jess Hughes, Kelly Jones, and Holly Gray in the achievement.

Four of the current team also play for Academy sides at county level.

Executive principal of The Priory Learning Trust Neville Coles said: “Wow what a wonderful performance by these girls. England did us all proud in the World Cup and we have seen an inspirational achievement by our own students.”
