Educating Essex teacher lands own Channel 4 show All Back to School

Educating Essex star Stephen Drew will front a new series for Channel 4 next year.

The deputy headteacher - who featured on the first series of the school documentary in 2011 - will return to the channel for a new six-part project.

The series - which has the working title of All Back to School - will see Drew work with parents whose children are on the brink of permanent exclusion.

Along with a team of specialists, Drew will support the students - who range between the ages of 9 and 12 - as they are sent to a residential summer school in order to deal with their challenging behaviour.

The children will be joined by their mums and dads, who will be forced to address their parenting skills.

Drew delivered one of Channel 4's alternative Christmas messages two years ago, alongside his Educating Essex colleague Vic Goddard.

The fly-on-the-wall show won the Best Documentary Series prize at the Broadcast Awards earlier this year.
