There was a spellbinding night of magic and wizardry when Dereham's Neatherd High School held a Harry Potter night.
Fifty six of the school's students, aged between 12 and 15, turned up at the school in fancy dress on Thursday evening.
The children were arranged into houses with a sorting hat and there were spells and potion making with the school's science department.
Live owls were brought into the school and there was a Harry Potter trivia quiz and readings from the famous JK Rowling stories.
School librarian Lorraine Gill said: 'This is the third time we've had this event in the school and the children and staff always really enjoy it.

'It's the first time we've had live owls here for it so that has added something to the occasion.
'I welcome any opportunity to get children excited about books and to encourage reading for fun.'
