A TEN-YEAR-OLD Lundwood dancer beat off hundreds of students to win a place at one of the UK's top performing arts schools.

Sophie Richardson danced her way to a boarding place at the prestigious Tring Park School for Performing Arts in Hertfordshire.

Past students include Tala Lee-Turton, the Barnsley ballerina who joined the elite Bolshoi Ballet Academy, and Ella Henderson, X Factor finalist.

Sophie's mum, Jackie, said: "She was offered a boarding place but regrettably not a school scholarship. The panel recommended Sophie for the theatre arts course rather than just dance as she is fantastic as an 'all-rounder'."

Sophie has been training as a dancer since the age of three and attends Fearons Middleton School of Dance in Cudworth.

Jackie said: "We're now looking for help to get this talented little girl where she belongs and the opportunity of a fantastic future career in performing arts."
