Educating Greater Manchester

The BAFTA-winning series returns, this time to Harrop Fold Secondary, Salford

Prepare to step back into the classroom as this acclaimed fly-on-the-wall documentary returns for a fifth series. This term the cameras will be following staff and pupils from Harrop Fold Secondary in Salford, which has made great strides since being branded the worst in Britain just over a decade ago.

However, headteacher Drew Povey knows there’s still a lot of work to be done, and the first episode focuses on the integration of students from foreign countries, particularly 11-year-old Rani, who is struggling to make friends after arriving in the United Kingdom from war-torn Syria.
