The Nicholas Hamond Academy hosted an awards presentation evening for students both past and present.

Wing Commander Stew Geary from RAF Marham was present to highlight the qualities of diligence and resilience.

Alumni of the school visited the school to collect their examination certificates gained during the summer, and to catch up with old friends and teaching staff over canopies and refreshments.
