Sir William Romney’s School staff and students turn rock stars for the day.

Staff and students at Sir William Romney’s School, Tetbury have come up with a new way to develop their high achieving students – singing like Queen!

For one day all 500 students and staff took part in a ‘Lip Dub’ – a new craze which involves students lip syncing to Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ whilst touring the school. This was a student-led project that was a huge success thanks to the contagious enthusiasm that swept through the school.

“I was delighted by the way in which everyone in the school community threw themselves into the project. It confirmed what I already knew – that our school is a warm and welcoming community, which offers new and exciting opportunities to enrich the curriculum for all our students.”
Miss K Hopson, Assistant Headteacher

After seeing Lip Dubbing sweep the USA, students were keen to adapt this concept for the school. Students highly skilled in Music, IT, production and organisation came forward, planning, executing and editing the final cut.

This provided a fantastic opportunity for our talented students to enhance skills and areas of interest outside the everyday curriculum. I was amazed by the quality of the final Lip Dub video and by the dedication and commitment of the students involved.”
Mrs T Lynham, Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator

A core team of three students – Will Mustoe, Jed Palmer and Joe Sharpe – took on the task of organising, filming and editing the Lip Dub.

“The Lip Dub allowed me to use skills that I would not normally use in school, building on directing, cinematography and editing. I was very proud to be an integral part of this project and will be taking the things I have learnt onto future projects.”
Jed Palmer, student, Director and Lead Editor of ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ Lip Dub at Sir William Romney’s School
