This four-part series features 16 underachieving and extremely challenging 13-year-olds, who have been labelled as 'disaffected' by the state education system.
These apparently 'unteachable' kids are either completely disengaged or are so abusive and disruptive in school that permanent exclusion is inevitable.
In this groundbreaking project, four leading teachers try to turnaround these these bottom-of-the-class kids and every teacher's nightmare, and inspire them to become hardworking pupils with a future.
Over four months, the children are given the opportunity to experience a whole new way of learning with a strategy that has never been tried before.
The education team is tested to the extreme by the teenagers and each other as they struggle to keep their reputations intact and the pupils engaged.
The first week revolutionary English teacher, Phil Beadle has just one weekend to try and get all 16 children to buy into the plan.
He will assess their learning potential and try to get them on board with activities such as the 'dick head game' :lol: and Kung Fu punctuation. :twisted:

Will he manage to win them over before chaos engulfs the project?
