A GORLESTON school is appealing for former pupils to come forward for its Roll of Honour, after a decade of neglect.

Students from Lynn Grove High School who have gone on to get degrees or achieve great things now have the opportunity to join the school's prestigious alumni on the board, which includes S Club pop star and TV and film actor Hannah Spearitt.

A GORLESTON school is appealing for former pupils to come forward for its Roll of Honour, after a decade of neglect.

Students from Lynn Grove High School who have gone on to get degrees or achieve great things now have the opportunity to join the school's prestigious alumni on the board, which includes S Club pop star and TV and film actor Hannah Spearitt.

Stuart King said the school wanted its former students from the west Gorleston and Bradwell catchment areas to contact them if they had attained degrees or gone on to top careers.

He believed the last time the boards were updated was at the end of the last millennium, but because the school no longer has a sixth form the boards had fallen by the wayside.

Pupils in the 16-18 age range now attend East Norfolk Sixth Form College.

Mr King said: “We want to hear from people who have gone on to get degrees and are making a good living for themselves.”

However, he denied the school was taking an “elitist” attitude in reinstating the boards and was proud of all its students.

He added: “We have a high proportion of pupils who go on to get good qualifications and we are very proud of that and the Roll of Honour is just another way of saying we recognise our former students.”
