Pupils from a Rotherham school have scooped three awards at the town’s version of the Oscars.

Youngsters from Wales High School went home with a collection of prizes from the Roscars - the annual awards ceremony for pupils’ work in short films - at the New York Stadium.

Abigail Harris and Eleanor Smith, both aged 16, picked up their third consecutive award after submitting their comedy New Girl, which they directed and starred in.

A-level Media Studies student Katy Hoggard won Best Year 13 Film for her short movie Angel For Hire, a film noir based on the writing of detective novelist Raymond Chandler and the school’s film and animation club picked up Best Year 9 Film for Positive Learning in the Classroom, a tongue-in-cheek guide on how to behave at school.

Liam Sanderson, who heads up media production, said: “Once again our talented young film-makers have reaped the rewards of their hard work throughout the year.”
