Stars from Capital FM and Classic FM have joined us to write, record and release a new song in collaboration with the renowned media and entertainment group Global, on behalf of Variety Children’s Charity.

Available now to download from iTunes and to stream via Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music, the song ‘I Am Me’ was written and performed by boys and girls aged 4 – 17 years from our three schools; Wakefield Grammar Pre-Prep, Wakefield Girls’ and QEGS.

The song was produced at Wakefield Girls’ recording studio facilities together with the Global production team.

The Charity

The project was spearheaded by the students of the three Wakefield Grammar Schools for the local community, with its royalties going directly to Variety to raise much-needed funds for equipment for local vulnerable children. Lyrics including ‘I am the future, I am the stars’ and ‘We are the voice that fights for the dream’ were inspired by students’ commitment to help all children reach their goals.

How exciting you can write and perform your very own song. You’re heroes.

My daughter absolutely loves everything about the school. Older girls are great role models. Class sizes are quite small and teachers have a lot more time to spend 1-to-1 with the girls.
