Song recorded in tribute to tram crash

Around 60 pupils from Fairchildes Primary School and Meridian High School have professionally recorded a song they sung at the tram crash memorial service last month – and it could be available to buy online by the end of this year. They recorded their version of 'Somewhere Only We Know' by Keane on Monday (December 11).

It comes after the two schools performed the song at the memorial service on November 9 earlier this year as a tribute to the seven victims who died in the derailment.

Some of those who watched the incredible display called for the song to be released on iTunes.


The Advertiser was then contacted by Chris Ransom, who owns Baltar Media, a music studio within Scream Studios, on South End, who said he wanted to help.

Keane’s management team and Universal Music Publishing, who own the copyright of the song, then gave the schools permission to record and sell the song, with only a small admin fee needing to be paid.

The children, along with Jo Hussey, head of school at Fairchildes Primary School and the teacher who organised and produced the performance, conducted countless takes for four hours at the studio on Monday.


Mr Ransom, 30, who lives in Redhill but has been based in Croydon for 14 years, is hoping to produce the song by the end of next week and called it “exciting”.

“It’s what we wanted and this is why I got in touch,” he said.

“It’s really great and exciting to see the kids enjoy themselves and even the teachers all seem quite excited. Also, these people don’t even know this place exists, that this music studio is around here, so it’s good.

“Also, these guys can actually sing so I think it will be nice for them to get something down which they can look back on and be proud of as well as it being for charity.

“It should hopefully be released by the end of the year – fingers crossed.”

Our Headteacher, Martin Giles said that the recording of the song was "a wonderful and fitting way to help and support the families who were so badly affected by the awful tram accident". Year 11 student, Courtney Turner also commented that it was "a privilege to be involved in the recording and to show our support to the community".

Our students are now all eagerly awaiting the release date of the song, which should be within a few weeks of the recording and hoping that they will be able to raise a significant amount of money for the victims and families of those who lost their lives in the tram crash.
