How does being thrown out of school feel?

BBC London has been given unprecedented access to a centre that educates some of the hundreds of kids excluded from mainstream schools each year.

The Limes College in Sutton, south-west London, tries to turn around the lives of some of the capital's troubled children.

We have followed her since the start of the year until she recently received her GCSE results.
