An academy site which was put up for sale earlier this year has garnered a lot of interest.

In September the former Fakenham Academy building was put up for sale with Brown & Co after it had become dormant following the relocation to Field Lane.

The Grade-II Listed property, found on Wells Road, includes former classrooms, and a swimming pool, sitting within more than six acres of land.

While information about any potential buyer remains unknown, Henry Cockerton​, a partner at Brown & Co said: "There has been lots of interest from a variety of purchasers."

The Georgian building has been in disuse since the academy decided to merge its high school and sixth form in 2017 and was declared surplus to requirements by Norfolk County Council in 2021.

First built in 1823, the building was converted into an all-boys secondary school one hundred years later in September 1923.

It then became Fakenham Grammar School in 1944.

Part of the site remains in educational use - the Duke of Lancaster school was opened there in 2022.

The price is available on application.
