Series witnessing parent-teacher consultations in different schools across Northern Ireland. This episode focuses on Year 8 at Kilkeel High School.
Documentary series that gets to the heart of one of the most important nights in the high school calendar, parent-teacher consultations. With exclusive access to these normally strictly confidential conversations, each episode features a different school from across Northern Ireland and the pupils, parents and teachers from one year group as they gather to discuss success and failure in the classroom and beyond. From the trauma of going to big school for the first time to the pressure of preparing for final exams, these normally formal gatherings reveal coming-of-age stories, humour, inspiration and nostalgia where it is least expected.
This edition focuses on Year 8 at Kilkeel High School, where we find out how Jacob, Ellie and Drew have coped with moving to a new school in a tight-knit rural community. Have they been behaving? Are they keeping up with their homework? There is nowhere to hide when their parents meet their teachers.
