BISHOP Heber students were fierce competition in a Strictly Come Dancing contest between two other schools.
Thirty one representatives ranging from Years 7-13 took part in the Strictly Colliers Dancing Competition held at Nantwich Civic Hall last week, competing against Brine Leas, Shavington and Malbank High Schools.
Although Nantwich school Brine Leas were named overall champions, Bishop Heber proved tough to beat.
Bishop’s staff Kevin Lowe and Ann Jordan won the teachers competition, pupils Megan Mullock and Joel Wade came third in Key Stage 4 Quick Step; Year 9s Ellie Walker-Smith and Alice Williams placed second in the Cha Cha and fourth in the Quick Step, and Holly Jones of Year 7 with Alecia Mitchell of Year 8 won the Cha Cha Cha and came third in the Quick Step.
Host Darren Gough, winner of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, was there to present the evening.
Bishop Heber’s dance teacher, Hannah Skelton, is already gearing up for next year’s challenge:
“The whole experience of the competition has been a fantastic opportunity for the students,” she said.
“ They have received 6 hours of dance training by professional dance instructors, enjoyed the opportunity of meeting Darren Gough, both in school and at the competition, and enjoyed being part of a brilliantly organised competition, thanks to the organisers and sponsors, Colliers Cheese.”
