The Happy song by Pharrell Williams has been given a new twist by students at FACET that is guaranteed to raise a heart-melting smile.

The students are seen singing along and dancing, as well as showcasing some of the studies they enjoy, along with showing off their wood workshop where they make garden furniture items and signs for sale to the public.

Manager Kris Harrold said: “The video showcases all the talent we have got here.

“So many people don’t know what is available at a our college on their doorstep, hopefully this video will raise awareness of all the brilliant things we do here.

Filming was by Ellen Jackson of Peterborough and was shot in a day.
