Students from North Walsham High School have spend a night sleeping out on their school field while working towards their Duke of Edinburgh's Bronze Award.
The sleep-out was part of three training days for the 91 Year 9s, which was followed by a unsupervised expedition to Bacton Woods.
During their preparation, the group learned skills and subjects including first aid, tents and rucksacks, expedition food and cooking safety and maps and writing route cards.
This is the first time the school has run the programme for an entire year group.
The students have also been working towards their award by volunteering within the community and gaining skills in their own time.
