WORCESTER'S Nunnery Wood High School held their 12th annual sports awards ceremony.

The outstanding contribution to school sport, which was open to year 11 pupils, saw joint victors for both boys and girls.

Brothers Niall and Dylan O’Kane took the boys' honours and Kitty Godwin and Ella Hart won for the girls.

Thirteen-year-old James Harrison picked up the Lee Collins Award for Rugby and year 11 pupil Georgia Fox claimed the Richard Mann Award presented to recognise participation in a sport not played in school.

Talented biathlete Fox is on the United Kingdom's talent identification programme.

The team of the year accolade went to the school’s year seven mixed hockey squad.


The winners were announced by the guest of honour for the evening, former Worcester Warriors co-owner Jed McCrory.

More than 30 awards were handed out at the ceremony which headteacher Stephen Powell called a celebration of all that is good about sport at the school.

Bee Bannister, who organised and compered the evening, thanked McCrory for attending and donating his appearance fee to Great Ormond Street Hospital via a charity event Cycle4gosh.

It has been organised by year nine pupil Anna Hadley who suffers from the rare heart condition restrictive cadiomyothapy and is waiting for a heart transplant.


The teenager has raised more than £3,500 for the British Heart Foundation and £2,500 for Great Ormond Street.

A school spokesman added: "Jed provided an even bigger surprise at the end of the night by saying that he would match the school’s appearance fee himself, doubling the contribution towards Anna’s fundraising efforts."
