The Students

Description

Follow the headteacher of Kings Langley School through the spring term, focusing on his behaviour management system and drive to improve results at KS4.

Gary Lewis became headteacher of Kings Langley, a mixed comprehensive school in Hertfordshire, nearly five years ago. After a major relaunch he now presides over an improving and oversubscribed establishment.

Gary has introduced a behaviour management system loosely based on the football model of coloured cards, which has vastly reduced the number of exclusions at the school.

To boost GCSE results, a group of 35 students is identified who failed to achieve their predicted grades in the trial exams. They receive additional tuition and mentoring from Gary and his staff. Will the percentage of A*-C grades increase as a result?
