A headteacher's spoof music video to celebrate the last day of term has been shared across the globe.

Teachers and staff at Alec Hunter Academy, in Stubbs Lane, Braintree, let their hair down for the video set to Pharrell Williams’ 2013 hit ‘Happy’ in which they are shown dancing and larking around on the school site.

The video, which was put on YouTube in June and was made for the end of year leaver’s assembly, has since gone viral around the world and amassed a staggering 115,000 views.

In July, it had been seen just 7,200 times.
