Vice Principal Natalie Soul said: “All students were invited up on stage to collect their prestigious award that looked like a BAFTA trophy. The girls were extremely excited to be up on stage as a team supporting each other and hearing the feedback from the compère.

“The school was then asked to press the golden buzzer which automatically turned gold with lots of flashing lights, confetti cannons and sparklers resulting in a place in the grand final competing against the rest of the country this November at the 02 in London.

“We are incredibly proud of all our students. They have worked so hard for this moment and it paid off. We can’t wait to head to London later this year.”
