One of the world’s most famous scientists paid a visit to Fakenham Sixth Form to talk about his life’s work researching behavioural genetics.
Professor Robert Plomin, an American who works at King's College, London, spoke about DNA research and science students had the chance to discuss genetics with him.
A spokesman from the school said: "Fakenham Sixth Form are very grateful to Professor Robert Plomin for sacrificing his time in order to provide students with such an excellent opportunity and influencing the next generation of scientists."
Fakenham Academy has also hosted a 'soak day' as a fundraiser for the Year 11 leavers' prom.
Pupils got the chance to throw sponges at their favourite teachers in exchange for a donation to the prom fund.
Students thanked all the teachers who took part.
The school spokesman said: "The Year 11 Leavers Prom is an important social occasion to celebrate the success of all the hard-working students at Fakenham Academy Norfolk and to have the experience of planning and attending a formal event."
