Youngsters were the envy of children across the world when One Direction performed at their school – well, kind of.

As an end of term summer treat the tribute act Only One Direction went to Kingsley Primary School in Croydon to meet fans of the best selling boy band.

The boys have played One Direction’s songs including Best Song Ever and Little Things to more than 300,000 people worldwide and were delighted to be at the school in Thomson Crescent, Croydon.

At the school they performed a segment of their Midnight Memories tour ahead of their concert at the Fairfield Halls on August 7.
