It was the result of a competition that started in 2008. The 1,000 schools were whittled down to 10 schools, then at this point filming started with the three judges (Zoe Tyler, Duncan James, and Stacey Haynes). There was then a competition and dance off with the final 3 schools (Shoeburyness High School, Great Barr School, and Wallasey School).
