Pupils at one Cumbria school got a lesson they probably never forgot in 1994.

Millom School's childcare lessons with a difference saw pupils tasked with working with real children as part of their lessons.

Every Thursday, GCSE pupils could be seen trundling around the school grounds with toddlers in pushchairs.

They took care of the children of neighbours and relatives for the afternoon to learn what it was really like looking after toddlers.

The youngsters had to be kept amused and pupils took them for walks, played with them and watched their behaviour.

At the end of the year the pupils had to provide a written report on their individual charges.
