More than 50 children from the school have taken part in a lockdown rendition of 'Over the Rainbow'.

Most of the pupils aren't at school at the moment, so they've all recorded their parts of the song over video calls, with the school getting it edited together.

The beautiful version of the song was released on social media to coincide with the weekly #ClapforourCarers initiative last night (Thursday 30th April).

Susie Lamb, Director of Music, said: 

'We have been delighted with the enthusiasm the pupils have shown in wanting to say 'thank you' to all the brave NHS and Key workers who are working so hard to keep us safe. Pupils from the ages of 3-13 have joined in this song, sending in their recordings from their own homes."

Salisbury Cathedral School is open for the children of key workers at the moment, but all of the teaching is being done remotely, to include their friends at home too.

There's been a mix of live lessons, pre-recorded classes and assigned work.

Head Master, Clive Marriott, who lives at the school, said: 

"It is a privilege to be able to look after our pupils who have parents working for the NHS and in other key worker positions. We are immensely grateful for their dedication and hard work during these challenging times."
