Retreat: Meditations from a Monastery
This series immerses the viewer in the world of the Benedictine monks. Peer into this idiosyncratic but incredibly peaceful existence and share the unique experience of living like a monk.
Baverstock Academy is opposed to permanently excluding disruptive kids and will go to almost any lengths to keep them in mainstream education. This special follows the students in the run-up to exams to see if the school can honour its pledge to keep disruptive pupils in school.
Most excluded kids end up in pupil referral units, where less than two per cent pass exams. The Academy hopes its exam success will change the way the education system treats disruptive pupils and set the pattern for how these children are treated in the future.
