Rollits supports Archbishop Sentamu Academy students bid to top the charts

Rollits has worked closely with Archbishop Sentamu Academy on the launch of its song "Move as One" in a bid to top the music charts this Christmas.

Archbishop Sentamu Academy in conjunction with record label Nu Skool Music has recorded the song, with all proceeds from downloads after production and distribution costs going to the international humanitarian aid charity Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). 

Andrew Chubb, Principal of Archbishop Sentamu Academy and Chief Executive of the Sentamu Academy Learning Trust, said: "We knew that there would be a raft of legal issues to deal with in order to get such an audacious project off the ground, so we approached Rollits' Education Team for a solution.  Their commercial & intellectual property specialists worked closely with London-based expert music Counsel Gwilym Harbottle of Hogarth Chambers to make sure that we put the right legal structure in place to give the song the best chance of success. 

"Although there is stiff competition from contenders such as this year's X Factor winner and Star Wars, it would be wonderful if "Move as One" claimed the coveted Christmas number one slot this year". 

James Peel, Commercial & IP Associate within Rollits' Education Team, said:  "We are pleased to have been able to support Archbishop Sentamu Academy in this innovative project.  In addition to the exciting real-life learning experience for the students the project is raising much needed funds for a great charity." 

The song will be released for download on 18 December 2015.  The official video for the song can be viewed here  and pre-orders are being taken right now on iTunes and Amazon.
