Some students took the opportunity to really challenge themselves – Digby Fulford cycled over four miles to school on his unicycle – and then home again.

Christina Procter, head of social science, said: “By choosing to make active journeys wherever possible we are making a difference to our environment and our own health.

“We’re already looking forward to next year and seeing if we can encourage even more members of our school community to get involved.”
