They competed against teams from other schools in the South Holland area and took part in floor and vault disciplines.

Higher learning teaching assistant Linda Smith, who coached the team along with teacher Bev Gromett, said: “The children worked very hard and gave up extra time after school to practice.

“They did very well and we are incredibly proud of them.”
