Singer and songwriter Alistair Griffin and Eskdale school pupils are hoping to hit the right note tonight (Thursday) with the launch of a Save Our School song and video.

Eskdale School Choir with Alistair Griffin

Alistair, who is a former pupil, has been working with students over the last few weeks to record their thoughts and feelings about proposals to close the school and amalgamate it with Caedmon College.

The video will culminate with a choir of voices giving their own rendition of the Keane hit ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ which they say sums up Eskdale.

Alistair said: “We’ve heard a lot from councillors and parents, but this video and song is about giving the children a voice.

“To hear children talk with such passion about their school and education is inspiring, and underlines that this isn’t a school we should be closing, but one we should be proud of.”

The screening, hosted by Alistair, will be at The Met from 5.30pm.
