Former pupils of a town's high school are being called back to the classroom to encourage academic success for the younger generation.
Sir John Leman High School, in Beccles have asked former students of the school to support the younger generation in the school's 'old school tie' programme.
The programme, run by educational charity Future First, is designed to motivate young people and broaden their job prospects.
Headteacher Michael Taylor said, "We signed up to Future First's scheme straightaway.
"A network of past pupils with all their valuable experience will be vital in helping us to broaden current pupils' jobs horizons and equip them for the world of work."
