Pupils at Cromer Junior School had a chance to learn about jobs with companies and organisations ranging from Norfolk Constabulary and the RSPCA, to local building and solicitors firms, at a trade fair-style careers day they organised with the help of their teachers.

The event featured information stands set up by companies invited by Year 6 pupils, who wrote to local vets, restaurants, architects and beauty salons.

Also attending were representatives from City College and Easton and Otley College, with students from the University of East Anglia handing out information and running a workshop for pupils and parents.

Cromer Junior School deputy head teacher Suzanne Ashpole said last year's event had allowed children and their families to see the value of education in helping them to achieve their dreams.

'This year was bigger and better, with a wider range of people,' Mrs Ashpole added. 'We are passionate about trying to raise the aspirations of pupils and we are acutely aware of the challenges facing young people.'
