Students in Hellesdon had a taste of university life during a visit to Cambridge.

Thirty-three students from Hellesdon High School took part in the trip to the University of Cambridge earlier this month, where they enjoyed an interactive talk about what university is like.

It was followed by a tour of college, including the office where the late Stephen Hawkins was based as a professor of physics, and a lunch in the grand hall.

Richard Taylor, director of sixth form at the school, which is part of the Wensum Trust, said: 'We want to inspire these students at an early age, to show them what the world of higher education has to offer them, and to encourage them to aim for the very best.'

The trip was funded by the Network of East Anglian Collaborative Outreach, a multi-body project aiming to see students from all backgrounds and walks of life given the opportunity to go to university.
