Pupils from Wells Primary and Nursery School have been named officially brilliant.
The eight pupils from year 5 and 6 successfully completed the Scholarship Programme of The Brilliant Club, a national scheme designed to motivate children to aspire to and attend university.
They all attended Cambridge University, worked with a professor from the University of East Anglia in university style tutorials, and completed a 1000-word essay before graduating at the UEA on Saturday.
During their graduation the youngsters were shown around the UEA campus and parents received information about university life, the types of courses on offer for their children and how to apply.
Wells Primary and Nursery School was the only school from North Norfolk taking part in this programme.
