A group of students from a Lowestoft high school have proved to be just brilliant.

The 10 East Point Academy students completed a challenging study programme inspiring them to aim for the highest academic achievements.

They graduated from the Brilliant Club course at a ceremony held at the University of East Anglia on May 12 after a rigorous programme of study led by a PhD student.

Five of the students received a first for their final assignments – the highest mark available. During the course they studied various topics, learning how to interpret and critique key texts and building their debating and analytical skills.

They also enjoyed a tour of Cambridge University, giving them a taste of life as a student.
