THE two secondary schools in the Thornbury area are set to feature in a new BBC 2 documentary series.

Bristol-based television production company Label1, which recently made the series Hospital, has been asked by the BBC and Open University to explore “the challenges, triumphs and future of our education system”. 

It will capture life in Britain’s secondary schools across an academic year and has agreed with the Castle School Education Trust that it will film at its four secondary schools, including Marlwood School in Alveston and The Castle School in Thornbury.

The six-part series is due for transmission in 2018.
