Channel 4’s drama set in a multiracial school in a Yorkshire mill town is back for a second series.

In the opening episode, head teacher Mandy Carter (Jo Joyner) decides to toughen the school’s curriculum, while English teacher Emma Keane (Liz White) is still in a relationship with one of her colleagues. Among the students meanwhile, Nasreen Paracha (Amy-Leigh Hickman) still feels unable to come out as a lesbian, so pretends to have an engagement with Naveed Haider (Gurjeet Singh).

Ackley Bridge is on Channel 4 at 20.00.
