Former Britain's Got Talent pop band Boycode proved to be big hit with year seven students at St Albans Girls' School last Thursday (Sep 29).

Greg, Timmy, Lennert and Matt thrilled the pupils by singing, dancing and delivering a poignant message on the dangers of cyber bullying.

Band vocalist Timmy reminded the students of their serious message by saying: “Your words are powerful girls so please use them wisely.”

This much anticipated event arranged by the PSHCE department raised awareness and gave expert advice on how to cope with tricky situations online.

Debbie Smith, the PR & marketing co- ordinator at the school, says: “I must say I was most impressed, such polite, genuine and kind guys. They looked and sounded very good too.”

The children seemed to think so too as Debbie adds: “The screaming was so loud it could be heard throughout the entire ground floor of the school building.”

Afterwards students were invited to engage in a short Q&A session with the lads. They also got the chance to talk them individually and pick up a personally signed photo.

Excited year seven pupil Rosie Littlechild said: “The band were really trendy and very good. We just loved listening to them and didn't want them to leave.”

Boycode have a recording deal with Sony and have a single out at the moment called Farewell to Julia. Last year Boycode beat over 500 competitors in an audition to create a new boy-band.

They have toured Ireland and one of their most recent successes was been working on a collaboration with Disney to produce the sound track for the film Violetta.
