The Big Top came to Thomas Willingale School and Nursery in Loughton with a special free treat for children who registered near perfect attendance last year.
The visit of Happy's Circus on Wednesday evening was the school's annual attendance incentive with children who had an attendance record of 97 per cent or better last year receiving two free tickets to the event.
A total of 213 lucky children were given free admission with their parents and the rest of the school community offered the chance to purchase tickets.
Headteacher Teresa Phillips said: "Happy's Circus and the Street Food vendors went down a treat and the evening was an amazing success."
