Pupils from Brooke School in Rugby are jumping for joy after success in a recent cheerleading competition.

Two teams at the special school went to the National Cheerleading Championships in Manchester.

The Brooke Allstarz primary team were crowned as Special Schools National champions for the fourth consecutive year and the secondary team, the Brooke Twirly Birds, finished second against very strong teams from other special schools.

The Twirly Birds had held this title for the last three years.

Staff from the school said both teams gave fabulous performances and were a huge credit to their school and families. The Brooke School cheerleading coaches also won a prestigious National Coaching award for the Development of Schools Cheerleading.

This unexpected award was in recognition of their hard work and commitment to the development of cheerleading in Special schools.

Brooke School were the first special school in the UK to compete in the National Schools championships alongside their mainstream peers, this led to the development of a competitive arena for Special Schools.
