Last Chance Academy

Summary

An insight into life at Baverstock Academy in Kings Heath, Birmingham, a ground-breaking school opposed to permanent exclusion that will go to extraordinary lengths to see students make it to the exam hall. This Panorama special follows teachers battling to help disruptive pupils achieve five GCSEs. Last year alone, 146,000 children were excluded from the classroom, 3,900 permanently. For those who end up in referral units less than 2 per cent will achieve a pass at grade C - a figure that highlights a need for change in schools across the country.
