Robert, Year 8



A look at the school and learning experience of Robert, a Year 8 pupil at Hove Park School in Sussex.

Robert can have difficulties with his written work in English, yet once his imagination is excited, he can't put his pen down. He loves break time and PE, running around with his friends and having fun, but reveals a growing anxiety about his progress at the school, and what Year 9 will bring.

What is it like being on the receiving end of the education system? What is it like being in Year 8, when progress can dip?

This revealing series follows four Year 8 children, offering snapshots of their perceptions and experience of school. The programmes interweave intimate classroom footage with frank video diary confessions recorded by the children in their bedrooms.
