Youngsters at Claydon High School have been brushing up on their Big Top skills by learning all things circus from plate spinning to acrobatics.

And some lucky GCSE students will be putting their new-found ability to the test when they take part in the performances.

Michelle Bibby from Circus Ricardo has been putting the students through their paces during workshops in the school this week.

And she said that it has been a fun learning experience for them all.

"The show opened last night with some of the drama and music students taking part and showing off their clowning abilities.
