It's back to school for Channel 4 with the follow-up documentary series to the critically-acclaimed, Bafta award-winning Educating Essex. Educating Yorkshire is an eight-part series, exploring what really happens behind the school gates - but this time in a northern town. In this preview episode from the forthcoming series you’ll meet the staff and students of Thornhill Community Academy near Dewsbury. The series captures every detail of life in the school from playground hijinks and inspirational lessons to life-changing events. It follows the work of Headteacher Jonny Mitchell and his team to better the chances for all his students and build on successive years of improving exam results. Told with warmth and humour, this series explores the universally-recognisable themes of teenage life and those all-important pupil-teacher relationships which lie at the heart of everyone’s formative years.
