Fakenham Academy has today opened its new sixth form centre, after a £750,000 investment in the refurbishment.

The Academy in Fakenham was originally divided between two sites, with Fakenham College located at Highfield House, on Wells Road, and the high school at the main academy site on Field Lane.

Plans were announced last year to unite the two, with the college being renamed Fakenham Sixth Form when it moves onto the Field Lane site.

The refurbished buildings have had a quarter of a million pound investment.

It is hoped that by 2020, up to 300 sixth form students could be taught there, rather than the current 150.
