More than 3,000 viewers tuned in to watch Sidcot School's virtual Christmas concert - including two special Sidcotians in their 80s.
Premiering on the independent school's YouTube channel - the performance featured more than 50 students.
Headmaster, Iain Kilpatrick labelled the event 'a triumph' as it brought the curtain down on an academic year like no other.
Mr Kilpatrick said: "It was uplifting and struck just the right balance of ancient and modern.
"The sound quality and visuals matched the level of performances perfectly.
"I know the time and effort of all the staff and students who took part to make the concert such a success, for which I am extremely grateful."
Former students and octogenarians Keith and Bobbie Ann Kerton were in virtual attendance.
