Top 5 End of Year School Songs

Type: Primary  |  Date: 11th May 2016

This blog post is a celebration of all those school songs that sum up your last days of term perfectly, from the emotional goodbyes to the felt tip pen signatures on your uniform!

So if you're looking for some music to inspire your class, here's our pick of the five best school songs to help students celebrate the end of school this summer:

7 Years - Lukas Graham

One of 2016's stand-out songs both in the UK and overseas, this is a great school song to play to your students as the reflective lyrics will help leavers envision their hopes and dreams for the future.

Teenage Dirtbag - Wheatus

This may have been a one hit wonder back in 2000 when it was released, but this infectious underdog anthem will be played for years to come at school discos, especially by those remembering their first school crushes!

Baggy Trousers - Madness

“Playing football in the park, kicking pushbikes after dark” - Baggy Trousers sums up all the fun and mayhem that happens on your average school day. Play this school song for a chance to see both students and teachers on the dance floor! 

Hall of Fame - The Script

Originally released in 2012, this inspirational song encourages students to follow their dreams no matter how impossible they may seem. Whether they want to become teachers, politicians or preachers, this is a great choice for leaving them with a motivational mantra before the holidays begin. 

School's Out - Alice Cooper

No end of school songs list would be complete without this 1970s classic from the scariest man in rock music! This is the perfect school song to play a few minutes away from their last lesson, or to listen to for an instant hit of nostalgia from your own school days.

All of these school songs can be played in our 'End of Year School Songs' playlist on Spotify, which we've created especially for our Leavers' Books customers to use if they want the perfect soundtrack to their last day of school.
