Description

Teachers Lorna Collymore, Carol Hillery and Ben Desausmarez from Kingsmead Primary School in Hackney, east London, learn the art of circus acrobatics to raise money for Sport Relief.

Olympic wheelchair basketball champion Ade Adepitan visits the school to announce that the teachers will be embarking on an intensive training programme to prepare for their circus experience.

Firstly, they are sent to a High Ropes course where their nerves and teamwork skills are put to the test. Next they attend circus school where their performance skills are honed.

Finally, Lorna, Carol and Ben have to demonstrate their new skills in front of the whole school. Do they pull it off or will they be left looking like clowns?
