Educating Greater Manchester is a documentary series filmed at Harrop Fold Secondary school in Salford. It is a school at the heart of a changing community, dealing every day with everything that gets throws at them.
There's election fever as the search for Harrop Fold school's first ever Head Girl and Head Boy begins. And an unexpected candidate throws his hat into the ring at the last minute.
The teachers at Harrop Fold grapple with the fun and the friction that social media brings to the school. They struggle to contain a Snapchat revolution when an anonymous school-wide message encourages students to break the rules by coming in in trainers. Meanwhile, head teacher Mr Drew Povey has to try and negotiate peace between Year 11 girls Serena and Lelo when Lelo is accused of breaking the 'girlcode' by talking to a boy on FaceTime. Social media fan Deputy Head Mr Ross Povey tries to motivate 16-year-old Tom, who's studying for his GCSEs, after anxiety problems lead his attendance to drop to an all-time low. And can Miss Bland come to the rescue when 11-year-old Caprice refuses to come to school after being called names on social media? It's also time for The H Factor, Harrop's all singing, all dancing talent competition; will anxious Tom pluck up the courage to perform alongside teacher brothers Ross and Ben Povey?
This episode focuses on Harrop Fold's newest arrivals and youngest students - the Year 7s - and their characterful Head of Year, no-nonsense Miss Bland. Arriving at school at the same time as the Year 7s is new teacher Mr Humphreys, who's 25. With just a year's teaching experience, at an all-girls' school, Mr Humphreys came to Harrop looking for a challenge but gets more than he bargained for when he becomes 11-year-old Tiger and 12-year-old Billy's form tutor. Best friends Tiger and Billy are messing around in lessons, bringing handcuffs into school and getting into all sorts of mischief. And on Valentine's Day love is in the air for 11-year-olds Lily and Jacob. They used to be boyfriend and girlfriend but since Lily called it off they've been calling each other names and falling out in lessons, leaving Miss Bland to pick up the pieces. But Jacob still has feelings for Lily. Can he win her back with a grand gesture?
Headteacher Drew Povey has his work cut out when the results of the mock exams prove disappointing. With only a few months until the real GCSEs, he and his two deputies throw everything they can at the problem, putting on extra lessons, calling a special parents' evening and trying to inspire confidence in the students. But will it be enough when the results are announced in August? All the while, Mr Povey's background in behaviour management is put to the test dealing with a Year 8 student who has had a dangerous fight in the corridor.
