Channel 4 have today announced the commissioning of the one-off documentary, Educating Yorkshire – One Year On.
The programme will catch up with headteacher Mr Mitchell and staff members including Mr Burton and Mr Steer. We’ll learn what they’ve been up to over the past year and follow them as they prepare for the end of another school year and GCSE results in August.
The programme also finds out what many of the students are up to. Robbie Joe and Ryan are continuing to make their mark at school. Musharaf has finished his first year at college, Sheridan is learning to drive, and Georgia has had a very momentous year. We’re back for results day too, following Bailey and Tom collecting their GCSEs, and then transmitting on television that night.
Channel 4’s Documentary Commissioning Editor David Brindley says, “before we introduce viewers to the wonderful new ‘Educating’ school in East London we could not miss this opportunity to catch up with the national treasures of Educating Yorkshire from latte-loving Ryan to indomitable head Mr Mitchell. It is has been a busy year for Thornhill but the staff have remained as devoted as ever to bringing out the best in their students and ex-students.”
Following the transmission of Educating Yorkshire – One Year On, the Educating series will focus on a new school in Educating Walthamstow.
