A link-up partnership between a sixth form college in Gorleston and a primary school will see youngsters form bonds with teenage students.
The partnership between East Norfolk Sixth Form College and Wroughton Academies will see older students gaining enhanced work-experience across the primary school by spending time in classes and in a range of curriculum areas.
It will also enable younger children to forge bonds with students in further education and is aimed at developing aspirations for college and university for many of the Wroughton children.
College principal, Dr Catherine Richards, said: “The partnership between us and Wroughton is an excellent way for both establishments to support the future progression of students. Our students are getting invaluable experience of the classroom environment and at the same time acting as role models to inspire future generations of Wroughton pupils about the benefits of college. We are excited to be collaborating on such a worthwhile initiative.”
Dr Craig Avieson, the executive headteacher at Wroughton Academies, said: “Very often we place increased focus on primary-aged children working with secondary schools and although our strong links with Lynn Grove enable this, we also value the importance of teaching primary children about further and higher education, so that they can aspire to achieve their goals.
