One of Norfolk's most prominent schools had announced an open day to celebrate its 150th anniversary.

Notre Dame High School, in Norwich, was founded in 1864 when the sisters of Notre Dame arrived in the city and founded the high school in its centre.

The school has invited all its form students and staff to an open day on Saturday, July 12, which will take place from 11am to 3pm.

The event will include a programme of entertainment, as well as a photograph display, and the chance to take a tour of the school.

The school's company secretary, John Eady, has also written a book, Notre Dame High School, Norwich, A Celebration of the First 150 Years 1864-2014, which will be published by Shire publications in July.
