Teachers at a Surbiton school surprised departing pupils with a farewell song at their last assembly.

Year 6 pupils at St Andrew's and St Mark's junior school were expecting the usual arrangement - sharing their memories of their time at the school.

But their teachers had something else in store.

St Andrew's and St Mark's vicar Rev Robert Stanier said: "This year the staff did something different - they got a staff choir together. They sang this beautiful Celtic blessing to the students.

"The parents were in tears. It's just a lovely thing."
