Talented students at a Clevedon school scooped multiple award nominations.

Clevedon School was proud to be nominated for five awards in the Somerset Fellowship of Drama David Beach competition for its production, Calamity Jane.

They were the only school represented in the nominations alongside a number of well-established amateur dramatic societies.

Clevedon was nominated for best set, best musical direction, best chorus and best leading female.

It also, for the third-year running, was nominated for the best youth musical category too.

Debbie Morgan, head of dance and drama, is delighted to see 
the school pupils achieve so much success.

She said: “We pride ourselves on the community feel of the show.

“Students, staff and parents are all essential to the creation of our fantastic productions.

“This was never more evident than this year, with the school winning the awards for best set and technical excellence on a youth production.”
