They are the biggest UK boyband on TikTok with more 1 million followers.
Pedros Santos, Tommy Lyon, Ryan Burns, James Thomas and Zach Loizou took part in a presentation and performance for students earlier this month.
The focus was on mental health, cyberbullying and staying safe online – issues the boys have dealt with themselves.
Here At Last made the most of their day in Dorset with hour-long sessions for different groups from Year 7 through to Year 10. They performed a string of songs, including their hit single Tongue, took part in a Q&A and also spoke about the stress and pressure they have faced during lockdown.
The event was organised by Sasha Board, careers lead at Atlantic Academy, who told the Dorset Echo: “The group were very relatable for our students with the subjects they were discussing from mental health through to body image.
“Everybody has a mental health and some days it can be good and other days it can be bad. The response to Here At Last from Atlantic students was really welcoming.’’
Secondary principal Lesley Bishop said the event highlighted how personal development and wellbeing of students is as important as grades at Atlantic which is an all-through school.
She said: “The sessions with Here At Last allowed the students to think and reflect on the information they had been given.
“Our focus is not just on academic results. We also care about the wellbeing of our students – it is very important to us especially coming out of lockdown.’’
Places are currently available at Atlantic Academy Portland for Reception and Year 7, September 2022 start. To find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org
