Headteacher breaks into song mid-speech


A headteacher at a school in Bath surprised hundreds of pupils and parents when he burst into song in the middle of a speech.

Chris Wheeler, Headmaster at Monkton Combe School, was making the traditional speech day address to pupils who are leaving the school when he slowly began to sing 'One Day More' from the musical Les Miserables.

Moments later other teachers joined in with the performance. You can watch the video below:

“'I am always keen to show pupils that just as we ask them to put themselves out there, so we are prepared to do the same. There aren't many schools where the deputy head, medical centre nurse, a houseparent, pupils and even a governor would be prepared to risk embarrassment in the name of fun but I am very proud that Monkton is one.”
