Speaking English as first language at school

At 10, join the debate with Nihal. He's asking, can your child succeed in a school where no other kid speaks English as a first language? A primary school in Peterborough has been rated as good despite not one of the children at the school growing up as a native English speaker. Would you consider sending your child to this school or one like it? After 11, Rupa Huq discusses her new book 'On the Edge' and after mid day, Rohid Zamani talks about his journey as a refugee from Afghanistan to being a student at Eton.
