Students at Churchill Academy and Sixth Form were given the chance to try out a new sport with Britain's fastest snowboarder on Friday.

Sky Sports Living for Sport mentor Jamie Barrow treated pupils to a snowboarding lesson at Mendip Snowsports Centre.

This was the first time that many students had ever given snowboarding a go.

PE teacher Gary Hart said: “It was a fantastic session with the students, who all enjoyed learning new skills.

“Having Jamie there provided great encouragement and he certainly made it a lot of fun.”

Jamie is currently preparing to travel to Switzerland, where he will attempt to be towed across a frozen lake by a plane.
