Students in Wells are celebrating their share of a �315,000 windfall to help them take a more creative approach to lessons.
Alderman Peel High School is one of 45 Norfolk schools to take part in Creative Partnerships - the government's flagship programme to promote imaginative learning in classrooms.
The scheme aims to use creativity to develop the skills of 13,000 young people across the county, raise their aspirations and achievements, and open up more opportunities for their future.
With the help of a “creative agent” children from the school will take part in a three-year programme to challenge their understanding of environmental issues and different cultures.
Deputy headteacher Nigel Youngman said: “We are an outwardly looking eco-international school. We want to give the children at the school the very best of opportunities to place themselves not just at the heart of their local community but at the centre of the world community.”
Creative Partnerships Norfolk is managed by the Norfolk and Norwich Festival working in collaboration with Norfolk County Council's children's services department.
