Episode 1

By Matthew Solon. New head teacher Roz Taylor, eager to be inclusive and accommodate all faiths and cultures, finds herself increasingly at odds with one of the parent governors.

Collington House is a secondary school in a Midlands town with a large proportion of its students from the Muslim community. New head teacher Roz Taylor, eager to be inclusive and accommodate all faiths and cultures, finds herself increasingly at odds with one of the parent governors.

This is a drama that gets behind the news headlines and political wrangles to examine what is actually meant by "Islamisation" and the difference is between radicalisation and the co-existence of different faiths in schools on a day-to-day level.
