Ooh la la! Dereham Windmill is set to Vive La France for the rest of the month as students from Northgate High School set up a French Art Exhibition.

The 130 pupils in year 7 have created French inspired art works as well as writing their gallery discriptions and artists’ biographies in French.

The exhibition adorns the walls of the Grade 2 listed windmill and a grand opening is being held this afternoon.

It will remain open throughout March on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10am to 4pm.

Entry is £2.50.

The school aims to give pupils the opportunity to use their French for real communications and has previously received international awards for its projects in modern foreign languages.
