As part of this year’s Rise project pupils at the Cooperative Academy in Stoke-On-Trent wrote songs and developed the storyboards for a series of animations to use as resources to help young people start talking about their experiences of loneliness, isolation and transition to high school.

The completed films will form of a resource pack that will be freely available for use in schools. Make Some Noise will be holding an online event to launch the resources in October 2020.

Here is Senior Music Leader James Stanley playing the original version of the song created by the group.
