Pupils at SET Ixworth School have won a national competition after creating their own music video - in French. 

The competition was run by French culture and language school, Institut Français.

In just one month, 25 Year 9 students created  ‘Au Revoir Confinement’ as an ode to the end of lockdown and online lessons. 

One of the singers, Fleur, said: “I found it amazing being able to work with some very talented people I would have never worked with after so many months of online learning."  

Classmate Theo said: “When our French teacher asked for volunteers, I jumped at the chance, even though French isn't my favourite subject!"
