A special rewards assembly has been held for a number of pupils at a Dereham high school following a successful work experience week.
A total of 173 students from Neatherd High took part, with almost 70 year 11 pupils rewarded with certificates for excellent reports from the employers.
'Our students get so much out of this experience,' said Rob Hodges, head of careers.
'At school they will learn academically, but being in a workplace for a week will teach them other valuable life skills they can't learn at school.'
Toftwood Infant and Toftwood Junior School, hosted five pupils.
