A government minister has visited a Norfolk school to see the changes which have driven improvements in its GCSE results.
Mr Gibb spoke to pupils and staff, sat in on lessons and listened to poetry recitals as part of a programme where the whole school learns a poem or speech from a play.
The school, which is part of the Norwich-based Inspiration Trust, has recently confirmed plans to expand, with a new classroom block, improved library and canteen, and future sixth form.
Great Yarmouth Charter Academy headmaster Barry Smith said: “We are always open to visitors and it was very special to have the school’s minister here to mark the last day of the spring term.”
