World Record Attempt

Update for Participants


Dear Colleague,

We would like to thank you for your participation, support and hard work in helping create a huge global lesson and raise thousands of pounds for charity.

We are forwarding separately a press release about the event which would provide an opportunity for good publicity about your school if you would like to amend it and include your school details and share it with local newspapers and media organasations.

Our tech-support team have now reported that over 27,000 participants were able to view and take part in the lesson. We do know, however, that on the day a small proportion of our participants were unable to access the stream and can only apologise for the disappointment and disruption that caused.

The next steps are these:

We need to present the evidence to Guinness World Records as soon as we can and we have been told a decision will be made soon after our submission. If you are able to submit the evidence I have attached the evidence checklists.

For sending video and documents digitally there is a link to the service : Wetransfer at

Alternatively, content can be loaded up to a cloud storage service such as dropbox or google drive and shared with:

If you need any help at all with the challenging task of sharing your evidence please get in touch. We have a team of colleagues ready to assist.

Every effort you make in submitting the evidence is valuable and essential to break the world record. Upon verification of the record (or otherwise) cerificates will be posted to all participants.

Thank you once again. Even if you are receiving this email and were ultimately unable to participate, your support and interest was invaluable.

With our very best wishes

Chris, David and the World Record Lesson Team
