A 15-year-old school pupil has led his neighbours in a musical tribute to key workers with an uplifting performance of You'll Never Walk Alone.

Benjamin Dyer is a pupil at Claires Court School, College Avenue, Maidenhead.

Inspired by the recent achievement of Captain Tom Moore, Year 10 pupil Benjamin orchestrated a musical performance honouring all the key workers keeping the country running.

Following advice from Claires Court Senior Boys Head of Music Adrian Roach, Benjamin led his neighbours in Claremont Road, Marlow as they congregated outside their houses at a safe distance before the weekly 'clap for carers' last Thursday.

He made sure everyone started singing at the same time in the right key and that his clarinet could be heard by everyone in the road.

Benjamin said: “I just wanted to do something however small, to show my appreciation to the NHS and all carers for what they are doing now.”

He was the only musician taking part and despite some nerves received a round of applause from his neighbours and requests for an encore.

James Wilding, Claires Court Academic Principal and Head of Senior Boys, praised Benjamin,saying: “What a terrific, uplifting story of hope and community in these uncertain times. Our broad, rounded curriculum at Claires Court means that our pupils acquire a range of life skills - academic, social, musical, creative and sporting, as well as the opportunity to build confidence and to take risks, as displayed by Benjamin here.”
