Image of Football Anthem - Chorlton High

As preparation for the recent World Cup, our school choir joined the band My Beating Heart to record a footballing anthem -
Come on England (You Better Believe It) to celebrate England's participation in the tournament.

Sadly, we know success eluded England once again, however this creative collaboration was featured regularly on radio, watched on YouTube, and sold well enough upon release to raise a sizeable donation for Child Bereavement UK.

Our sincere thanks to the phenomenal My Beating Heart, our students loved being featured alongside members of some of the UK’s most celebrated bands!

Check out the single below:
