A secondary school has launched a new lunchtime initiative.

Pupils at Clevedon School can enjoy the art of unicycling.

Students went head-to-head in a unicycling time trial during the hour-long lunch break.

Headteacher Jim Smith said: “The unicycle challenge was yet another example of pushing the boundaries of what students think they can achieve.

“By raising aspirations in many different ways it leads to culture of excellence and success being the norm.”

The unicycle was invented by Americans in the 19th century and are single-wheeled vehicles.
