    It's hard to know who comes out on top in such an incredible round of juvenile playground joking, but this guy deserves particular praise for getting us going and, obviously, rapping while holding a crutch.

    This guy too, for not using any pre-prepared lines.

    This chap is a bit too aggressive, but at least he gets the all-important OTT reaction.

    The video has rocketed to the top of the r/video subreddit after Brazilian rapper and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here contestant Aggro Santos uploaded it to his Facebook page.

    BuzzFeed News cannot verify the claims, but the uniforms certainly look very similar.

    Numerous people got in contact with BuzzFeed to confirm the video was indeed shot at St Mary Redcliffe school.

    And headteacher Elisabeth Gilpin has now told the Bristol Post:

    "The 'rap battle' concerned took place in Feb/March 2014 at lunchtime in the playground and was dealt with at the time by a member of staff.

    "Many of the students involved now no longer attend the school.

    "Those that do have been dealt with, with regard to the inappropriate language and sentiments and the dangers of posting anything on Facebook."

    Gilpin added: "I certainly don't want five minutes of inappropriate playground activity approximately 6 months ago to be considered as representative of our students.

    "The students concerned have been very apologetic and embarrassed to be perceived in this way and want to make sure that they do not become permanently associated with this.

    "They have learnt a hard lesson about the power of the internet."
