An England international and an Olympian returned to their old school to honour its sports stars.

Clevedon School hosted its sports awards, with ex-pupils Jack Butland, goalkeeper for Stoke City, and former 10,000m runner Kate Reed inspiring students with tales from their careers.

The event praised Clevedon's burgeoning sports stars and their achievements over the past 12 months.

Emily Brooks won the sporting excellence prize, while Alyssa Henley Furneaux took home the female sports personality of the gong.

Alfie Harrison won the boys version, and the team of the year award was given to the under-15s cricket team.

Louise Wilkins, the school's leader of PE, said: "This was a wonderful night of inspiration and aspiration as our students were rewarded for their great success and were able to hear 
two examples of former students who have achieved remarkable things."
