Description

An examination of the vital role played by the support staff in a large multi-ethnic all girls secondary school in Birmingham.

Swanshurst School lies close to Edgbaston Cricket Club and currently has 1800 pupils. This programme adopts a fly-on-the-wall style as we reveal what it takes to keep a school like Swanshurst going.

Our typical day sees the team of sixty-five support staff team dealing with:

  • A broken boiler that threatens to close the school
  • Noisy disruptive renovation work
  • A careers convention
  • Census checking
  • Budget juggling

Swanshurst has an annual budget of £7.5m and this lively programme shows how the support team manage that money and ease the load on the teachers.
