British pubcaster BBC2 is taking viewers back to school in a new six-part series from London-based factual television production company Label1.

Label1 has been granted access to a multi-academy trust of four secondary schools in South Gloucestershire, responsible for 5,000 students, where School (working title) will shoot.

The 60-minute episodes will explore problems faced by schools and headteachers across the country, including increased class sizes, fewer support staff, shorter school days and a more restricted curriculum, all through the lens of an education system facing increased public and political scrutiny.

School is produced by Label1, with Simon Dickson (pictured, left) and Lorraine Charker-Phillips (right) serving as executive producers. The series was commissioned by BBC2 channel controller Patrick Holland and head of documentary commissioning Clare Sillery.

Dickson and Charker-Phillips also executive produce BBC2 and Label1′s series Hospital.
