The pair were joined by their heads of school as well as Dereham mayor Hillary Bushell.

They were personally invited by Ms Stone and were "incredibly proud" to have been the only school in Norfolk to have been invited and represented at the evening.

Ms Stone said: "Katy and David represent all that is good in our high schools today and rarely articulated."

The head boy and girl also had the opportunity to meet with and chat informally to the Lord Mayor of Norwich, Martin Schmierer, and Lord Richard Dannatt about their experiences at Northgate and their forthcoming GCSEs.
