BREDON Hill Academy pupils have been excelling on the sporting stage.

They dominated the Worcestershire School Games' district cross-country by finishing champions in both year six and seven events.

Esme Jelfs was second individually in the year six girls' race with Tyrese Sibanda second in the equivalent boys' race.

Erin Lewis-Painter and Patrick Coates were runners-up in the year seven girls' and boys' races respectively.

The runners who finished in the top six will represent South Worcestershire at the county games in February.

For years eight and nine, Bredon Hill did not enter a team but had runners in the top eight with Fin Smith, Jas Girvan, Euan Styles, Freya Jelfs and Django Taylor being county qualifiers.

Pupils from the school were also crowned South Worcestershire district swimming champions in years seven and eight at Evesham Leisure Centre in a close contest.
