A student at City of Norwich school has won a writing competition.
Alfie Clay was one of 250 year seven students who entered the competition organised by the national education charity Future First.
The students had to dream up jobs of the future and imagine how the world of work will be in 2039.
Alfie as Sir Alfie Clay becomes an underground lost life explorer in a secret organisation fighting X-tech which wants to rid the world of humans and replace them with robots.
Prizes were presented by Norfolk author and UEA lecturer Raffaella Barker.

Matt Lent, chief executive officer of Future First, said: 'The students' ideas of what work could be like in 20 years' time were so inventive, but there is a serious point behind the competition. The world of work and the skills young people will need changes very quickly and schools have to keep up.'
