Erin and Scarlett Rolfe are competing at the event in Florida next month.

Year 12 pupil Erin (aged 16) and Year 10 student Scarlett (14) have been cheerleading since they were four-years-old and are elite athletes who compete at the highest level.

Each week they travel to Milton Keynes and Essex for their training sessions to prepare for upcoming competitions throughout the year.

Their talent, skill and dedication sees them tumble, stunt, jump and dance all throughout a two-and-a-half minute performance.

Corby Business Academy principal Simon Underwood said: “We are immensely proud of both Erin’s and Scarlett’s achievements.

"Competing at a world level standard obviously requires skill and talent, but it also takes dedication and resilience.

“What the girls have accomplished should quite rightly be celebrated.

"We are all behind their journey and can’t wait to see more in the future."

Dr Fiona Rowe, who is Scarlett's form tutor and Erin's history teacher, added that they are incredible students and that she is so proud of them.
