Eastgate Academy has high aspirations for all its pupils and offers a stimulating environment where they can succeed.

Eastgate is passionate about ensuring pupils have an understanding of the world around them and how education can have a positive impact on the rest of their lives.

During the visit, Mr Wild – who also visited Brancaster Primary School – joined in with a Year 6 African drumming class where the pupils had been learning about how different cultures communicate through the art of music.

He then joined key stage 1 pupils who had been creating flower prints inspired by Japanese art, and reception class who had been taking part in a sunflower art project in the outdoor learning area.
