The trees were planted after the sixth form, along with its partner school Northgate, joined forces with the Woodland Trust for its Big Climate Fightback campaign.

A spokesperson from Dereham Sixth Form said: “At the beginning of December we shared the news that we had joined the Woodland Trust’s Big Climate Fightback campaign and had started by planting a plum tree in our field.

“Callum, Ilana and Alice joined Mrs Iwanczyk in planting the 30 saplings that arrived from the trust. We look forward to the years to come as we watch these trees grow.

“This tree is just the start, with more trees coming in March. As a college we’re trying to help in any way we can.”
