Both teams had four gymnasts competing in three events – floor routine, body management routine and vault.

The teams returned to school dripping in medals for both team and individual performances.

The Key Steps 3 team, have been particularly successful throughout their primary school careers and the Key Steps 1 team look set to follow in their footsteps.

A school spokesperson said: “Not only are they team-mates, but also a group of close friends which has contributed to their success.

“The school gymnasts, led by Mrs Glassford, have worked so hard over this year to ensure they were in tip-top shape for the finals.”
