TV cameras will be returning to Harrop Fold school in Manchester for a second – and third – series of Educating Greater Manchester.
It is the first time that the Bafta award-winning Educating... series has returned to a school. Previous series have been filmed in Essex, Yorkshire, London and Cardiff.
Drew Povey, head of Harrop Fold, announced that the 772-pupil Salford school will be back on our screens in a tweet that has already been liked at least 1,300 times.
And fans were delighted.

@drewpovey Best news ever. Can't wait to see you all back again. Almost makes me want to go back to teaching myself.— David Hamilton (@WireWolfHD) January 24, 2018
Now Channel 4 has said it has commissioned 16 more one-hour episodes to be filmed across the school year.
Nick Mirksy, head of documentaries at Channel 4, said: “It’s fantastic to be returning to Harrop Fold. It is an extraordinary school full of characterful students and a very dedicated team of teachers and support staff. And we are confident that everyone there has a lot more to tell us about school life in Britain today."
