Mr Woodhouse, headteacher at the school, was thrilled to get the local musician involved.

He said: “I heard Rachel singing as part of the Tour de Yorkshire celebrations back in the summer.

“Her voice was amazing and I knew the children would benefit from listening to such a talented professional.

“Rachel is an excellent example of how someone can achieve great things with talent, determination and hard work. She is a super role model.”

She said: “It was a real honour being invited to come and play, and actually pretty nerve racking, but what a lovely school! I hope my visit inspires them to pursue what they love, just like I have!”

The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
