A fencing supplier will stock metal sockets to extend fence posts. But I got mine from B&Q. they’re basically a open box shape with tangs inside to grip the wood.
If you’re extending it above 1.8m, you will need planning permission. Just thought I’d chip in.

Fence height: How high a fence can I put on my boundary?

The height of fences is a matter of planning policy. To find out what is allowed in your area contact the local authority planning office. As a general rule, fences in rear gardens are allowed to be up to 2 metres high. //
I think you can go above the legal height by using a trellis, but you best check this with your local authority's planning dept.
