Educating Yorkshire set for Christmas Special

Hit fly-on-the-wall docu-drama Educating Yorkshire will be on our screens again this winter - for a one off Christmas Special.

The follow up to the 8-part series will look at how some of the school's better known pupils are doing in the new school year.

The original shows followed the staff and GCSE pupils at Thornhill Community Academy near Dewsbury.

The first episode attracted 3.3 million viewers and 126,000 tweets, with the rest of the series enjoying similar success.
