It was all looking very James Bond-esque at Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston when pupils got a behind the scenes look at the science, technology, maths and engineering used by the armed forces.

As part of British Science Week, students in years seven and eight from ASHS were visited by a team from BAE systems, alongside the RAF and Royal Navy.

The presentation team taught pupils how computer programming and coding is all part of the technology that goes into the work of the armed forces.

They brought with them a robot and quad drone, which students where able to see in action and interact with.

Claire Leeder, faculty leader for innovation at ASHS, said: 'Students really enjoyed this experience.'
