The event on November 26, also gave the leavers the chance to catch up with their peers and members of staff, as well as many governors. Also joining the celebrations were associates from Great Yarmouth College, Nexus Training and Fusion Hair, who all contributed to the learning of specialist vocational subjects offered.

Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Cllr Shirley Weymouth was a guest.

This year was unique, as it was the last year as Caister High School and the first as Caister Academy. It was also a year in which the school saw its best results, achieving 53pc A*-C GCSEs including maths and English, with maths results achieving 66pc, which is above the national average and English 65pc, at national average.

The entertainment for the evening was provided by current year 11 pupil, Tom Flaxman, who performed a piano solo Estate by Bruno Martini; ex year 11, Beth Lain, who performed her own composition I'll Write a Song for You; and ex-year 11s Luke Ames and Maisie Buck, who performed a dance choreographed by Luke to I Love You/I Loved You.
