George, Louis, Gabriel, and Ramis,

0:00:030:00:08

playing for St James' Church of England Academy from Dorset.

0:00:080:00:11

And competing against them are Ameya, Hasan, Amaani, and Faris,

0:00:110:00:18

from St Pius X Preparatory School from Lancashire.

0:00:180:00:21

But who will be Top Class? APPLAUSE

0:00:210:00:25

Hello, and welcome to Top Class.

0:00:390:00:41

The search for the UK's smartest school is nearly over,

0:00:410:00:44

because this is the final! APPLAUSE

0:00:440:00:48

And let's meet our finalists.

0:00:510:00:53

First up, St James' Church of England Academy.

0:00:530:00:55

In their semifinal,

0:00:550:00:56

they won 27 points to 25 against Millburn Primary School.

0:00:560:01:02

George, what do you think tipped you over the edge

0:01:020:01:05

so that you got through to the final of Top Class, George?

0:01:050:01:08

-Some of you might have guessed it, but it's Geoffrey.

-Geoffrey!

0:01:080:01:10

The mascot with the special jumper.

0:01:100:01:13

Louis, what are you going to do in the final that'll help you win

0:01:130:01:17

the fabulous trophy?

0:01:170:01:19

Push my hand on the buzzer quicker.

0:01:190:01:21

Absolutely. Press it with force and determination. Absolutely!

0:01:210:01:26

Gabriel, team captain of St James'.

0:01:260:01:29

You must feel incredible that your team has got the final.

0:01:290:01:33

Yeah, it's brilliant!

0:01:330:01:35

And what are you going to do in the final to help your team

0:01:350:01:39

win Top Class?

0:01:390:01:40

I think encouragement, because that's about it.

0:01:400:01:44

Ramis, how are you feeling?

0:01:440:01:47

I've had a change.

0:01:470:01:48

You've had a change?

0:01:480:01:50

Tell me all about it, Ramis.

0:01:500:01:52

I'm now the most optimistic person on the planet.

0:01:520:01:55

I could not be happier, Ramis!

0:01:570:02:00

If you didn't watch the semifinals,

0:02:000:02:03

I was convincing Ramis he should feel confident in himself.

0:02:030:02:06

You now feel confident, Ramis?

0:02:060:02:08

-Of course.

-This is amazing!

0:02:080:02:10

It's like the best thing that's ever happened.

0:02:100:02:12

So say, "I am Ramis, and I am confident!"

0:02:120:02:14

I am Ramis, and I am confident!

0:02:140:02:16

Yes, Ramis! Come on! APPLAUSE

0:02:160:02:19

Good luck today. Please welcome St James' Church of England Academy,

0:02:210:02:24

from Dorset! APPLAUSE

0:02:240:02:28

And playing against them are St Pius X Preparatory School.

0:02:300:02:34

In their semifinal, they went head-to-head with

0:02:340:02:36

Bowes Primary School, and won 21 points to 18.

0:02:360:02:39

Ameya, it was a close one.

0:02:390:02:41

Yes, very close,

0:02:410:02:42

but I think because just before it we did a bit of revision, so I think

0:02:420:02:48

that was one of the reasons why we actually remembered some

0:02:480:02:52

-of the answers.

-Hasan, calm, cool, collected team captain.

0:02:520:02:57

What are you going to do to help your team win Top Class?

0:02:570:03:00

I'm going to make sure everybody's opinion is counted.

0:03:000:03:04

And I'm going to keep confident.

0:03:040:03:05

Amaani, what are you going to do to help the team out today

0:03:050:03:08

in the finals, Amaani?

0:03:080:03:10

Encourage them, and make sure that we all feel happy.

0:03:100:03:16

Even if we lose or win.

0:03:160:03:18

Faris, my friend.

0:03:180:03:19

In the semifinals you asked for a round entitled,

0:03:190:03:21

Things That Faris Knows.

0:03:210:03:23

-I did.

-I can tell you now, Faris,

0:03:230:03:25

I have not introduced that round into the final of Top Class.

0:03:250:03:28

-Very upsetting.

-Is it very upsetting?

0:03:280:03:30

What are you going to do to help your team out in the final, Faris?

0:03:300:03:33

Win or lose, we showed team spirit and we showed confidence,

0:03:330:03:37

-and that's all that matters.

-That's absolutely true, Faris.

0:03:370:03:40

Best of luck. Please welcome St Pius X Preparatory School,

0:03:400:03:43

from Lancashire! APPLAUSE

0:03:430:03:46

Best of luck to both of you.

0:03:490:03:50

Here we go with Round One.

0:03:500:03:52

Remember, it's the finals. The questions get more difficult.

0:03:520:03:55

Listen carefully to everything I say.

0:03:550:03:58

And remember, I have to accept your first answers, OK?

0:03:580:04:01

Here's your first control question.

0:04:010:04:02

The subject is...

0:04:020:04:04

What is the most populated city in Wales?

0:04:090:04:13

Hasan.

0:04:130:04:14

Cardiff.

0:04:150:04:16

Is the correct answer, Hasan.

0:04:160:04:17

Well done, you get a point. APPLAUSE

0:04:170:04:19

You have control of the game.

0:04:190:04:21

Here are the rest of your questions, on the subject Flags.

0:04:210:04:25

On the screen, you'll see a world flag, but one colour is missing.

0:04:260:04:31

Here's your first flag.

0:04:310:04:32

What colour is missing from the flag of Luxembourg?

0:04:330:04:36

My team's going to go with red.

0:04:390:04:41

You're saying red. Let's see if that's right.

0:04:410:04:44

It is right, well done.

0:04:440:04:46

Can you work out what colour completes the flag of Iceland?

0:04:460:04:50

Iceland. That's blue.

0:04:500:04:52

No, that's Norway.

0:04:520:04:54

-No, it's definitely blue.

-It's blue, trust me.

0:04:540:04:56

OK. I'm not sure, but we're going to go with blue.

0:04:560:04:59

You're saying blue. Let's see if that's right.

0:04:590:05:01

It is right, well done.

0:05:020:05:04

What colour is missing

0:05:050:05:07

from the flag of Hungary?

0:05:070:05:09

-Green.

-Green, yes. It's green. It's definitely green.

0:05:090:05:12

My team decides that it's green.

0:05:120:05:14

You're saying green. Let's see if that's right.

0:05:140:05:17

It is right.

0:05:170:05:19

And, finally, what one colour completes the flag of Macedonia?

0:05:190:05:23

-Yellow.

-Yellow.

0:05:230:05:24

Or is it orange? Is it orange-y?

0:05:240:05:26

Yellow, it's yellow.

0:05:260:05:28

OK, we're going to go with yellow.

0:05:280:05:30

You're saying yellow.

0:05:300:05:31

Let's see if that's right.

0:05:310:05:32

It is right, well done. You got five points, St Pius.

0:05:330:05:36

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:05:360:05:38

So, at the end of that round, St Pius have five points,

0:05:390:05:41

St James' have nothing yet, but there's loads of time.

0:05:410:05:43

Give them both a huge round of applause, well done.

0:05:430:05:46

APPLAUSE

0:05:460:05:48

Now, Hasan, in that round, that was quite interesting,

0:05:500:05:53

because you were taking your team's advice when you weren't sure if they

0:05:530:05:57

-were correct.

-That was actually my round, you know,

0:05:570:05:59

because flags is my subject.

0:05:590:06:01

So, Faris, I did have a round for you!

0:06:010:06:03

Thank you.

0:06:030:06:04

Let's move on. And the next subject is...

0:06:040:06:07

Here is your control question.

0:06:110:06:14

Who was the first British monarch to have their photo taken?

0:06:140:06:18

-Amaani?

-Charles I.

0:06:200:06:22

Incorrect. St James', do you have any idea?

0:06:220:06:25

No conferring.

0:06:250:06:27

-Gabriel.

-Queen Victoria?

0:06:270:06:29

That's the correct answer, Gabriel.

0:06:290:06:31

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:06:310:06:33

You've got a point, you've got control of the game.

0:06:350:06:37

Here are the rest of your questions on history.

0:06:370:06:40

In this game, you're going to see four key events in history

0:06:400:06:43

on the screen, and you must put them in the order that they occurred.

0:06:430:06:47

So, the events are...

0:06:470:06:49

So, put them in order for me.

0:06:590:07:02

What was first, second, third, and fourth.

0:07:020:07:04

-Fourth is Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee.

-Mm-hm.

0:07:040:07:08

-Then first e-mail sent was probably three.

-Yeah.

0:07:080:07:12

-OK.

-And then the discovery of the moons, probably two.

0:07:120:07:16

Right, the earliest event, we think, is A.

0:07:160:07:22

And what do you think was second?

0:07:260:07:28

C.

0:07:280:07:29

-What happened third?

-B.

0:07:330:07:35

And the fourth event?

0:07:380:07:40

D.

0:07:400:07:41

That's them all up on the board.

0:07:440:07:45

Let's see how many you got correct.

0:07:450:07:47

Well done, St James', you've got three points in that round.

0:07:500:07:53

Well done! APPLAUSE

0:07:530:07:56

You just got the first two the wrong way round, but well done.

0:07:560:07:59

And, at the end of that round, St Pius have five points,

0:07:590:08:01

St James' right behind them now on three points.

0:08:010:08:04

APPLAUSE

0:08:040:08:08

Gabriel, that was just the first two.

0:08:080:08:10

-Yeah.

-But you weren't quite sure, were you?

0:08:100:08:13

-But you tried to work it out.

-Nope.

-But you got the last two right.

0:08:130:08:16

-Yeah.

-Louis, you knew 2012.

-Yeah.

0:08:160:08:18

And e-mails have been around for as long as you can remember,

0:08:180:08:21

-haven't they, Louis?

-Probably, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:08:210:08:23

Do you know we had something called a landline, Louis?

0:08:230:08:25

-No, I don't remember that.

-No, you don't remember that.

0:08:250:08:27

-That's absolutely fine.

-It's probably hundreds of years ago.

0:08:270:08:30

It was hundreds of years ago. Thanks, Louis.

0:08:300:08:32

So, let's move on to the next subject, and it is...

0:08:320:08:36

Here is your control question.

0:08:400:08:42

Buzz in if you think you know the answer.

0:08:420:08:44

In science,

0:08:440:08:46

materials that do not let heat move through them easily are called

0:08:460:08:50

thermal... Ameya.

0:08:500:08:52

Insulators.

0:08:520:08:54

It's the correct answer, Ameya, well done.

0:08:540:08:56

You got a point. You have control. APPLAUSE

0:08:560:08:58

Here are the rest of your questions, on the subject of parts of the body.

0:08:580:09:04

On the screen you'll see an image of a human body,

0:09:040:09:06

and I'll ask you to identify the highlighted part.

0:09:060:09:08

Which part of your body is this?

0:09:080:09:11

-Heart.

-Heart.

-We're going to go with the heart.

0:09:120:09:16

You're saying the heart. Let's see if that's right.

0:09:160:09:19

It is the heart.

0:09:190:09:21

Can you name this part of the skeleton?

0:09:210:09:25

-The skull.

-Skull.

-Or the cranium.

0:09:250:09:27

-We're going to go with the cranium.

-What?

0:09:270:09:29

The cranium or the skull.

0:09:290:09:31

That is correct, Hasan. Well done.

0:09:310:09:33

And what is this part called?

0:09:330:09:37

-Lungs.

-The lungs.

0:09:370:09:39

We're going to go with the lungs.

0:09:390:09:40

You're saying the lungs. Let's see if that's right.

0:09:400:09:43

It is the lungs.

0:09:430:09:46

And, finally, what name is given to this part of your body?

0:09:460:09:50

-Intestines.

-Which one, large or small?

0:09:500:09:53

-Which one's higher?

-We're going to go...

0:09:530:09:54

-No, no, you have to say small or large.

-Which one's highlighted?

0:09:540:09:58

-The pink bit.

-We're going to go with the small intestine.

0:09:580:10:02

-(The large intestine!)

-You're going to go with the small intestine.

0:10:020:10:05

-(It's the large.)

-Let's see if that's right.

0:10:050:10:08

It is right, well done. You got five points, St Pius.

0:10:080:10:11

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:10:110:10:12

And so, at the end of that round, St Pius have ten points,

0:10:120:10:15

and, right behind them, St James' have three points.

0:10:150:10:17

Well done! APPLAUSE

0:10:170:10:20

But everything can change now in Top Class,

0:10:220:10:26

because it's time to move on to my favourite round,

0:10:260:10:28

because it's time to...

0:10:280:10:30

St James', tell me -

0:10:320:10:34

who have you brought with you, Gabriel?

0:10:340:10:36

-Mrs Dodd.

-Why?

0:10:360:10:38

She's still down with the kids, and I think she's great at

0:10:380:10:41

all this sort of stuff, I hope.

0:10:410:10:43

Yes. Well, St James', it's time to test the teacher.

0:10:430:10:45

Bring in Mrs Dodd. APPLAUSE

0:10:450:10:48

MUSIC: Wake Me Up by Avicii

0:10:480:10:53

Mrs Dodd, you personally chose that track to come on to.

0:10:590:11:02

-I did.

-Which is Wake Me Up When It's All Over.

0:11:020:11:05

-Yes!

-Can I surmise that's how you feel about this?

0:11:050:11:08

Yes! Yes.

0:11:080:11:10

What does it mean, do you think, to get to the final of Top Class?

0:11:100:11:14

I think it's an incredible achievement by the team.

0:11:140:11:16

-It is.

-To be in a top final of a top TV show.

0:11:160:11:19

-Thank you.

-Well done, Mrs Dodd! APPLAUSE

0:13:100:13:14

OK, St Pius. Hasan, who have you brought with you and why?

0:13:190:13:23

We have brought Mrs Davies, and you know the reason why.

0:13:230:13:27

Since she's been testing us, we're going to test her back.

0:13:270:13:30

LAUGHTER

0:13:300:13:31

So St Pius's theory is that, because Mrs Davies has given them the gift

0:13:310:13:35

of knowledge, they are going to put her through this for as long as is

0:13:350:13:39

humanly possible, to see how she likes it,

0:13:390:13:41

is essentially the way they're going.

0:13:410:13:43

Well, St Pius, it's time to test the teacher.

0:13:430:13:45

Bring in Mrs Davies! APPLAUSE

0:13:470:13:53

Mrs Davies, you chose that track yourself, didn't you?

0:13:570:13:59

-I did.

-Is that how you feel? Under pressure?

0:13:590:14:01

It's very much how I feel at the moment.

0:14:010:14:04

What do you think it means to get to the final of Top Class?

0:14:040:14:07

I think it's just amazing.

0:14:070:14:08

I mean, for all the children involved, whoever,

0:14:080:14:10

they've got this far, have done amazingly well, and I think

0:14:100:14:13

they should all be congratulated, no matter what the outcome.

0:14:130:14:16

Absolutely. You have 60 seconds, Mrs Davies, on the clock.

0:14:160:14:19

-Right.

-It's the last time you're going to have to do this.

0:14:190:14:22

0:15:300:15:33

at the semifinals. You've got yourself three points, Mrs Davies!

0:15:330:15:36

APPLAUSE

0:15:360:15:38

I don't know the answers to any of those questions either!

0:15:390:15:43

Who are these people?

0:15:430:15:45

How did you feel you did? I think you did brilliantly.

0:15:450:15:47

I feel a bit better than I did in the semifinals. That's something.

0:15:470:15:50

Yes, but they are tough, tough questions.

0:15:500:15:52

-They are.

-You did brilliantly, Mrs Davies,

0:15:520:15:54

-you should be very proud of yourself.

-Thank you.

0:15:540:15:56

You got three points, but, for now, you are dismissed.

0:15:560:15:59

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:15:590:16:03

So, at the end of that round, St Pius have 13 points,

0:16:040:16:07

but, right behind them, St James' have 8 points!

0:16:070:16:09

APPLAUSE Well done.

0:16:090:16:11

Gabriel, I think your teacher did really well.

0:16:130:16:16

-Are you proud of her?

-Definitely.

0:16:160:16:18

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-George?

0:16:180:16:20

-She did all right.

-Great, so...

0:16:200:16:22

It's good!

0:16:240:16:25

St Pius, Mrs Davies.

0:16:250:16:27

Hasan, I tell you, she so wants to do well for you.

0:16:270:16:31

Is there anything you would like to say to Mrs Davies?

0:16:310:16:33

She's wanted to do well so much,

0:16:330:16:36

but you didn't give her the right set of questions!

0:16:360:16:38

You keep saying that to me, St Pius!

0:16:380:16:40

But you didn't give her the right set of questions!

0:16:400:16:42

-I can't give her specific questions!

-And anyway, it's not

0:16:420:16:45

the end of the world. Three points is a lot in our eyes.

0:16:450:16:47

It is. Right, teams. You're in play again. It's time for Pet Subjects.

0:16:470:16:51

St James', you're going first.

0:16:520:16:55

Gabriel, what subject have you chosen for your Pet Subject?

0:16:550:16:58

Greek gods.

0:16:580:17:00

Greek gods. Now, remember, you buzz in.

0:17:000:17:03

You have 30 seconds on the clock to answer as many questions as you can.

0:17:030:17:08

Start the clock. Who is known as the Greek god of music?

0:17:080:17:11

0:17:110:17:13

Correct. What symbol would you associate with the Greek god Zeus?

0:17:160:17:18

0:17:360:17:38

Where do the Greek gods and goddesses live?

0:17:380:17:41

George.

0:17:410:17:42

-Mount Oleyton.

-No, that is incorrect.

0:17:420:17:45

-It was Mount Olympus.

-What? George!

0:17:450:17:47

Aw, never mind. It's OK.

0:17:470:17:49

At the end of that round, St James', you've got four points!

0:17:490:17:51

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:17:510:17:54

So, St Pius. Hasan, what have you chosen as your pet subject?

0:17:550:17:58

We have chosen fractions as our Pet Subject.

0:17:580:18:01

Fractions, OK.

0:18:010:18:02

30 seconds on the clock.

0:18:020:18:04

Start the clock. What is one third of 120?

0:18:040:18:09

Correct. There are 36 fish in the pond.

0:18:240:18:27

0:18:270:18:28

How many orange fish are there?

0:18:280:18:30

Ameya.

0:18:300:18:32

-18.

-Correct.

0:18:320:18:34

What is one quarter of 48?

0:18:340:18:36

Hasan.

0:18:360:18:38

Er, quarter...

0:18:380:18:40

12!

0:18:400:18:42

I'll take that, Hasan. That is the correct answer.

0:18:420:18:44

Well done. At the end of that round, you got five points, St Pius!

0:18:440:18:47

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:18:470:18:50

St Pius, you did very well.

0:18:500:18:51

And, at the end of that round,

0:18:510:18:53

St Pius have 18 points.

0:18:530:18:55

St James', really close behind them, have 12 points!

0:18:550:18:57

APPLAUSE

0:18:570:18:59

OK, on with the game. The next subject is...

0:19:020:19:05

Here is your control question.

0:19:080:19:12

In the sentence, "Craig completely understood the hard question,"

0:19:120:19:17

what word is the adverb?

0:19:170:19:20

-Amaani?

-Completely?

0:19:200:19:21

Correct answer, Amaani, well done. APPLAUSE

0:19:210:19:24

You've got a point. You've got control.

0:19:240:19:26

Here are the rest of your questions, on the subject of spelling.

0:19:260:19:29

In a second, you'll see an incomplete word on the screen,

0:19:290:19:32

and you need to fill in the gaps.

0:19:320:19:34

You only get one chance per word, Hasan, OK?

0:19:340:19:37

First word, spell...

0:19:370:19:38

"..ambulance."

0:19:390:19:40

A.

0:19:410:19:42

-A-M...

-Are you giving me your answer, Hasan? OK.

0:19:440:19:47

A-M-B-U-L-A-N-C-E.

0:19:470:19:51

Correct answer, well done.

0:19:530:19:55

Spell "especially."

0:19:550:19:57

That's one of my favourite words!

0:19:590:20:01

Es-pe-c-ia-lly.

0:20:020:20:04

E-S-P-E-C-I-A-L-L-Y.

0:20:040:20:08

Correct. Spell "ambitious."

0:20:090:20:12

A-M-B-I-T-I-O-U-S.

0:20:140:20:19

Correct.

0:20:190:20:21

Finally, spell "experiment."

0:20:210:20:24

I'm just...

0:20:260:20:28

E-X-P-E-R-I-M-E-N-T.

0:20:280:20:33

Well done, correct answer. Five points, St Pius. Well done.

0:20:330:20:36

Well done indeed! APPLAUSE

0:20:360:20:39

And that means, at the end of that round,

0:20:390:20:41

St Pius have 23 points,

0:20:410:20:42

St James' just behind them on 12 points.

0:20:420:20:44

Give them both a round of applause. APPLAUSE

0:20:440:20:48

It's very tense here, but let's move on to the next subject.

0:20:480:20:51

And that is...

0:20:510:20:53

Here's your control question.

0:20:580:21:00

In 2014, a bus stop on London's Regent Street

0:21:000:21:03

was made of 100,000 plastic bricks of what? Louis?

0:21:030:21:07

-Lego.

-Correct answer, Louis!

0:21:070:21:09

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:21:090:21:13

You have a point, you have control.

0:21:130:21:15

Here are the rest of your questions on the subject of the news.

0:21:150:21:18

This game is all to do with the people,

0:21:180:21:20

places, and events from the world around us.

0:21:200:21:22

Inside this newspaper are some questions for you to answer.

0:21:220:21:25

-Um...

-Let's list some Caribbean countries.

0:21:330:21:36

St Lucia, Jamaica.

0:21:360:21:38

Let's just say Jamaica.

0:21:380:21:39

That's a popular place.

0:21:400:21:42

-Guess, then.

-Which answer?

0:21:420:21:45

St Lucia?

0:21:450:21:47

St Lucia?

0:21:470:21:49

Let's see if that's right.

0:21:500:21:53

-It was Cuba.

-Oh, I knew it!

-Second question.

0:21:530:21:57

-I know him.

-Louis Smith?

-I know his...

-Shh!

0:22:050:22:08

-Louis Smith?

-You're saying Louis Smith.

0:22:080:22:10

Let's see if that's right.

0:22:100:22:12

It is right, well done.

0:22:120:22:13

The team captain's role is now to tell Louis to shut up.

0:22:150:22:18

I reckon it's either a cat or dog.

0:22:290:22:31

-I think cats have good climbing skills.

-It's a cat, it's a cat,

0:22:310:22:34

-I think.

-Are you sure?

-Cos it bites the postman's fingers.

0:22:340:22:36

A cat? I would have thought dog.

0:22:360:22:38

-Or a cat.

-It's going to be like an odd animal.

0:22:380:22:42

Gabriel? What's your answer?

0:22:420:22:44

-Cat.

-You're saying cat.

0:22:440:22:46

Let's see if that's right.

0:22:460:22:49

-It is right.

-Yay!

-Yes.

0:22:490:22:51

APPLAUSE That was intense discussion.

0:22:510:22:55

"Cat? Cat? Cat?"

0:22:550:22:57

Final question...

0:22:570:22:58

Oh, just go Alex Scott. That's the only female footballer I know.

0:23:040:23:08

Guys, is it the name?

0:23:080:23:09

Yeah, Alex Scott's a female footballer.

0:23:090:23:12

-Alex Scott.

-You're saying Alex Scott, let's see if that's right.

0:23:120:23:15

No, it was Laura Bassett.

0:23:160:23:18

But well done. At the end of that round, St James',

0:23:180:23:20

you got three points. Well done. APPLAUSE

0:23:200:23:24

So, at the end of that round, St Pius have 23 points,

0:23:240:23:27

St James' have 15 points.

0:23:270:23:29

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:23:290:23:32

I'll tell you something, whatever happens,

0:23:330:23:35

I'd like to see a television show with Louis and Gabriel arguing,

0:23:350:23:39

because it's one of my favourite things.

0:23:390:23:42

And the way you just stop him by going, "Shh!"

0:23:420:23:44

Very good, Gabriel. Very good!

0:23:440:23:47

OK, teams.

0:23:470:23:48

Down to business. This is it.

0:23:480:23:50

It's the last chance to make a difference to your scores.

0:23:500:23:53

By the end of this round, one of you will be Top Class.

0:23:530:23:56

It's the Battle Of The Buzzers.

0:23:560:23:58

90 seconds on the clock

0:24:010:24:02

for both teams to answer as many questions as you can.

0:24:020:24:05

Remember, you must buzz in.

0:24:050:24:07

I am going to be quite harsh.

0:24:070:24:09

No conferring at all, even if I offer the question over.

0:24:090:24:13

OK? 90 seconds on the clock.

0:24:130:24:17

Start the clock. Which animal is the British and Irish

Eurovision Song contest - what city was it held in?

0:25:180:25:20

No? It is Stockholm.

0:25:200:25:23

No, can't answer it. If a standard running track is 400 metres,

0:25:530:25:55

The west coast.

0:25:550:25:57

That is correct, Faris.

0:25:570:25:58

Well done. Give them both a round of applause.

0:25:580:26:01

APPLAUSE

0:26:010:26:03

Well, that was incredibly exciting.

0:26:030:26:05

You've all done brilliantly, but the winners with 27 points are St Pius!

0:26:050:26:10

APPLAUSE

0:26:100:26:12

Bad luck, St James'.

0:26:140:26:17

You've done so, so well to get this far.

0:26:170:26:19

Congratulations. You're worthy runners-up.

0:26:190:26:21

And can I say what a pleasure it has been to have you on the show?

0:26:210:26:24

You have been fantastic competitors in Top Class.

0:26:240:26:27

Please give them a huge round of applause

0:26:270:26:30

before we say goodbye to them.

0:26:300:26:32

Well done, St James'. APPLAUSE

0:26:320:26:34

So, that's it. That was the final,

0:26:380:26:41

and, St Pius, you are Top Class.

0:26:410:26:43

Come down here and collect your trophy.

0:26:430:26:46

APPLAUSE

0:26:460:26:48

Come on in. Lovely.

0:26:490:26:52

Well done. Well done.

0:26:520:26:54

Hasan, here you go.

0:26:540:26:57

Tell me, how does that feel, Hasan?

0:26:570:26:59

-Exhilarating!

-Exhilarating, of course it does!

0:26:590:27:01

How does it feel, Amaani?

0:27:010:27:03

Exhilarating!

0:27:030:27:05

-Faris?

-WOW!

0:27:050:27:07

That's quite excited.

0:27:070:27:08

-And how do you feel, Ameya?

-I think I feel a bit exhilarated.

0:27:080:27:11

A bit exhilarated. Of course they do, that's how they always feel.

0:27:110:27:15

We started out with 16 schools,

0:27:150:27:18

and now there is just one,

0:27:180:27:20

because St Pius are Top Class! APPLAUSE

0:27:200:27:23

Well, that's all from Top Class for this series.

0:27:270:27:30

I'll see you next time.

0:27:300:27:31

Goodbye! APPLAUSE
