Messages of support have also come from Snow Patrol, Leonna Lewis and the Proclaimers, whose anthem, 500 Miles, is the pupils’ latest cover.

The school’s latest hit and their first song, Snow Patrol’s Run, were produced by teachers at the school,

Head of Valley House, Sam Thomas, said: “I’m incredibly proud so many students and staff have been involved in these projects, showcasing these songs via our YouTube channel.”
