Honiton Community College’s piglets are thriving in their new home on the school grounds.
The 10 piglets, who are now over six weeks old, have all been given names chosen by students and staff as part of a Name The Pig competition.
West Ham, Moink, Spider Pig, Lady Oinkington, Pinky, Babe, Spice, Ting, Pepper and Pork Chop were the winning names.
Lady Oinkington, who has distinctive spotted markings on her back, is becoming a popular personality with the students and is the diva of the litter.

British lop-eared pig Princess gave birth to the piglets on Sunday, May 5. The family have been attracting plenty of visitors ever since and are regularly visited by both students and staff.
