Dressing up, dancing and lip syncing was all part of the fun as the school team performed to the song from the film ‘High School Musical’. Their video received over 1,000 hits on YouTube in just20 hours.

Head teacher Bryony Surtees said: “We wanted to give the pupils a treat and to put a smile on their faces during this challenging time so they all got together through the medium of technology and produced a video of the song ‘We’re All In This Together’ from the film High School Musical.

“The pupils were extremely pleased to see all of their teachers’ cheery faces and having fun.”
