PUPILS at South Molton Community College have been taking part in memory workshops to prepare them for upcoming GCSE exams.
The event, organised by Maximising Your Potential, saw students learn techniques used by memory world champions.
It's the first time such workshops have taken place at the school and they form a part of its Raising Aspiration scheme.
Former BBC reporter Jeremy Dry, who formed Maximising Your Potential 10 years ago, said the day was not only about making sure the students could remember the information needed for exams.
He said: "We are also trying to show them that they can do whatever they want, if they go out there and work for it."
Rachael Horsnell, administration assistant at the school, was delighted by the success of the day.
She said: "This is part of a whole idea of raising aspirations. We start it in year nine when they start thinking about their options and follow them right the way through.
"I asked some pupils if they enjoyed it and they said that it was really, really good.
"It has taught them a lot that they can build upon in the coming months."
