Above-average school drama
16 July 2017 | by DavidYZSee all my reviews

This is a Channel 4 drama series set in a secondary school in a poor town in West Yorkshire. A school in which the pupils are South Asian and a school in which the pupils are White British have been merged into a larger, new school.

It has been compared to BBC's Waterloo Road, but AB is better.

The first series was broadcast in June and July 2017. The second series is due to air in 2018.
