Singing their way Back to School

Aylesbury based Pebble Brook School is a co-educational special school. It is a community school which takes children from the age of 11 through to the age of 19. The school has approximately 140 pupils and it caters for secondary school aged children with moderate learning difficulties. 

This song, which was written by Headteacher David Miller, represents the energy, joy and fun that takes place at the school. The theme of returning to school after the third lockdown inspired their creative video.

The song was first put together last August but then rewritten in January to reflect the trials and tribulations of another lockdown. Headteacher David Miller told us: “The tempo, tune and lyrics pay tribute to my roots in punk and new wave, and poke fun at the things that we have been asked to do. Things we never thought we would be asked to do!

“Writing and recording a song like this is done safe in the knowledge that some very creative colleagues will build a story around it through video. The two complement each other and are essential in this art project; they could never work on their own.

“Our main goal was to create a positive message about returning to school, in a fun and exciting way, and we hope to get this message across to our audience.

“It definitely was such a success with our staff and students, and it most certainly won’t be the last the music video we will create, so keep an eye out in the future for more exciting and creative projects from Pebble Brook School”.
