Shakespeare and making art out of rubbish have helped north Norfolk special school pupils gain an award for their creative skills.

Sheringham Woodfields School has been given an Artsmark silver prize for encouraging its students to participate in a series of arts and culture-based activities.

The school's artist in residence helped the children create artwork with pieces of discarded junk, and pupils also attended a Shakespeare festival in Norwich.

Headteacher Diane Whit-ham said: “I am delighted we have been recognised for our progressive arts education programme which enables students to work with local artists.”
