“I have been astonished by the reaction to the film, never in a million years did I expect so much attention! It is fantastic for the school and it’s a great memory for me on a personal level too”. Mr Hughes, Head Teacher

Warrington based Penketh High School’s parody of Gangnam Style features over 50 teachers who have given up their own time before and after school to create the film as a celebration of the school’s success over the past twelve months.
Head Teacher, Mr Jeff Hughes, who retires at the end of the academic year, promised in December that if students hit their targets he would perform the famous dance. He now feels as though he has become a local celebrity over night. He has appeared on ITV’s Daybreak live, local Granada news and several radio stations. He said, “This has been a fantastic year for the school. Thanks to the hard work of the staff and students, we are now amongst the top 10% of improving schools in the country and this will be our best ever year in terms of exam results. I promised the students that if they hit all of their targets I would dance Gangnam Style and here we are!”
