An incredible year 13 leavers video has been viewed thousands of times, providing a lesson in how to commemorate the end of your time at school.

Dozens of pupils at Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School, in Bexley, south-east London, quite literally go Bonkers in the four-minute clip.

Teachers and staff join in too, with bizarre scenes taking place throughout the campus.

Dizzie Rascal, whose Bonkers hit provides the video's soundtrack, tweeted his support.

The song was a hit in 2009, when the pupils were beginning their time at the grammar school.

Head girl Madeleine Legemah said the stunt “displays perfectly the character and life of all [the school's] pupils”.

The 17-year-old told News Shopper: “The song was chosen as it was released almost seven years ago, on the May 17 2009, which is the year that we first joined the school, and so was a nostalgic throwback to our childhood.

“Last year, Chis and Sid's year 13 produced a music video to Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson, which has had 93,000 views.

“We hope we can match that, or even beat it with this year’s video.”
