A WEBSITE produced by a small rural high school has been short-listed for a prize in a competition being run by a national television channel.

Year 9 students from Holbrook High School's history club researched the role the Suffolk Regiment played in the First World War and put together the results on a general website, which is being used by schools and history groups throughout Suffolk.

Now the school has been short-listed for a local history prize by Sky's History Channel and could be the subject of a short documentary if it wins the competition.

Dale Banham, the school's head of history, said they had also had a visit from the acting producer of BBC Online, who are considering creating a site on the First World War for school.

Mr Banham said three students, Callum McClean, Nicholas Page-Vigus and Ben Pedro Anido, all aged 14, and the school's IT co-ordinator and deputy head teacher Andrew Pascoe, put together the general website, which can be accessed on www.slamnet.org.uk/history/suffolk_regiment
