Next Episode of Indian Summer School is
Five British boys who have failed their core GCSEs are given a second chance at a school like no other. Inspired by studies which suggest white working class boys do better academically in ethnically mixed classrooms, the boys take part in a study programme at the world famous Doon School in India. One of the best schools in the world, with an exam pass rate of 100%, British head teacher Matthew Raggett believes he can transform the boys' prospects in just six months, preparing them to re-sit their exams. The boys will have to shake off their old habits if they wish to survive the rigorous standards at Doon. Will they knuckle down?
As the boys arrive at the Eton of India, Jack and Alfie adapt best, while Harry slips into old habits. Having not been in school for two years, Jake and Ethan find it hard to adjust to the new regime.
Jack is doing better than the other British boys in class, but when he doesn't join in with a dare, he faces extreme consequences. As the only openly gay boy in school, Ethan finds it hard to fit in. To help him learn more about Indian culture, school tutor Amrit takes Ethan to visit members of the local trans Kinnar community. Harry's temper gets the better of him as he gets into a fight. And after continuing to disrespect the school rules, Jake and the headmaster lock horns, with drastic results.
After three months at the Doon School, all the boys are missing home; not least Alfie and Harry whose attendance and engagement in class have taken a turn for the worse. Ethan ruffles a few feathers when he writes an article for the prestigious school newspaper on being the first 'out' gay Doon boy. Jack goes on a trek into the Himalayas to find the source of the Ganges, on a mission to help build his confidence. And it's exam time, as the boys retake their core GCSEs. Will they get the grades they so desperately want?
