Ackley Bridge returns for another run of eight laugh-out-loud, irreverent and highly emotional episodes set in and around a school designed to unite the divided white and Asian communities of a small Yorkshire mill town.
The school is now part of a large multi-academy trust. Mandy has a new nightmare boss Ken who has dumped a load of unmanageable kids from the trust’s other schools on to her. Along with a suspect 'A-team' of senior staff, joining the school are new hot-headed Deputy Head Martin and disenchanted Director of Behaviour Sue Carp.
As Ackley’s Year 13 pupils enter their final year they all face questions about their future. Will Nas get to Oxford? Will Kaneez and Rashid take things to the next level? What will happen with Sadiq? Only one thing's for sure: at Ackley Bridge, nothing is certain.
Created by Ayub Khan Din, Kevin Erlis and Malcolm Campbell, Ackley Bridge is produced by Jo Johnson for The Forge Entertainment and Executive Produced by Alexander Lamb, George Ormond, George Faber and Ayub Khan Din.
Ackley Bridge returns to Channel 4 June 2019
