Due to budget cuts in a Yorkshire mill town, this series follows the lives of people affected by a merger of two schools in a largely segregated British and Asian community. Filled with thought-provoking topics of racism, poverty, bullying, sexuality and violence, this drama is based on real life cases of schools that have merged. The headmistress of Ackley Bridge College deals with never ending problems and explosive fall-outs as the prejudicial and cultural issues clash between pupils, staff and parents.
