The story of one school’s ground- breaking battle to save problem pupils from the scrap heap. 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.

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.
