Staff from Downham Market Academy took part in the spoof video of Queen's classic hit for school leavers.
The fun farewell video has become a social media sensation since it was shown to Year 11 school leavers at their prom last Friday night.
Ian Gooda, an English and Media Studies teacher who directed the video, said: 'It's gone somewhat viral as we've had almost 6,000 views in under 48 hours.
'The community surrounding Downham Market are all abuzz over it and social media is overflowing with comments like 'I miss DMA so much', 'Best Teachers Ever' and 'I wish we had teachers like this at my school'.
The video - which was shot and edited by Sixth Form student Sam Lance - starts with principal Jon Ford wondering what he is going to say to the leavers and then breaking into song.
