Channel 4’s latest addition to the social experiment genre sees children experience education in different parts of the country.

The show sees two groups of kids from swap schools, experiencing them to new cultures and people. In this opening episode, the schools involved in the swap are Tamworth Enterprise College in Staffordshire, where 95% of the pupils are white, and Saltley Academy in Birmingham, where less the 1% of the students are white British. What will these differing groups learn from each other?

The Great British School Swap is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
