Mental Health Awareness Week: Here at Last

On Thursday 5 May, ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week and as part of PSHE, we welcomed an entertaining live performance from band Here at Last, which was followed by hearing members of the band share their own issues, and give sound advice about mental health, online safety and cyber security. Anna A in Year 8 was lucky enough to have the band sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to her on stage!

Here at Last are a band from all over the UK. Formed in 2020, they sold out their first headline UK tour and will be headlining another tour later this year. They are also the biggest UK boyband on TikTok with over 2.5 million followers. Having all had their own issues with cyber bullying and mental health, the boys are in the perfect position to deliver such a positive message to students and are excited to be given the opportunity to educate and inspire. Please find a couple of links to their music videos below:

Here At Last – Someone To You






Old Palace has given us a massive opportunity to meet these up and coming artists. We were all thrilled by the experience we had in meeting them and listening to their inspirational words about their experience in cyberbullying and how to maintain our mental health. They were amazing singers and sang all of our favourite songs. We were over the moon when we met them, as they were just like us not too long ago. Their experience has taught us how to deal with cyberbullying, and that even those who have been made fun of or have been bullied can still succeed. Suruthi & Hannah, Year 8


I really enjoyed when ‘Here at Last’ came to see us today for PSHE. They were really nice, and they had some good points on cyber bullying.

I was really happy when they signed my sign. Sapphire, Year 9
