A GROUP of talented students from The St Leonards Academy attended the first ever Sussex Schools Cheerleading Competition held at the University of Brighton winning hands down.

The team won with a score of 246 points, six points ahead of second place. The girls have been working hard choreographing and perfecting the routine since Easter. Teacher and coach, Hannah Bretherick said: “This was a fantastic achievement and well-deserved. The girls hope to return next year to defend their title.”
