Teachers at a north Norfolk secondary school celebrated their pupils' exam results - by taking them out for a curry.

Sheringham Sixth Form's class of 2016 reassembled for a reunion at the weekend to celebrate their A Levels and catch up with former classmates before returning to their university courses or jobs.

They achieved a record level of success through their studies earlier this year - with over 25 per cent of pupils achieving A* or A grades, and over a fifth of students gaining Norfolk Scholar status.

Of the 72 per cent of students going to university, 37 per cent have gone to top Russell Group institutions - such as Cambridge, Oxford and Edinburgh.

Their achievements were recognised at an awards evening in the sixth form Canopy coffee bar on Friday updated staff on their adventures since leaving the Sixth Form.

In addition to the distribution of the A Level certificates, Heads of Subject awarded prizes, often with amusing insights into the students they taught.

The celebration was concluded with student Jack Brady (pictured far left), now reading languages at Cambridge, giving the closing address on how much the Sixth Form had meant to him and his year group.

Sheringham High School Headteacher, Dr Andrew Richardson said: 'It is so important to celebrate the success of these students but they are so difficult to get hold of now they've started at Uni. So, we used the fact that their terms seldom start until the second week in January, gave them the chance to come back and catch up with each other and staff - and took them out for a celebratory curry after the prizegiving. Who could refuse? What a great evening. We wish them every success.'
