WOMBWELL High has definitely got talent - as pupils proved when over 60 of them auditioned for a show.

Staff judges had a hard job selecting 17 acts to put through, and then in choosing winners from a variety of acts.

English teacher and joint organiser Damien Ryan said: “There were dancers, singers, martial artists and even a violinist! The standard was very, very high and we had real difficulty coming to a final decision, but in the end the judges has to make a choice”.

The winning act was a band consisting of Ellie Holdsworth, Chloe Jukes, Daniel Mackley and Joe Worthington, with the lads on acoustic guitars and the girls singing.

In second place was dancer Kathryn Vaines, and third was singer Billy Lycett-Eades.

These performers will strut their stuff again in July, when a Wombwell’s Got Talent Concert will form part of the entertainment at a bumper High School Gala.

Other attractions at the July 16 event will include martial arts, dunk the teacher, a bucking bronco, and five-a-side football, plus games and competitions.
