C4 orders Educating Yorkshire special

UK broadcaster Channel 4 (C4) has ordered a follow-up special to its popular reality series Educating Yorkshire from indie Twofour.

Educating Yorkshire One Year On (1×60’) will catch up with the lives of teachers and students at Thornhill Community Academy in Dewsbury as the school year comes to a close.

Based on the format Educating Essex, the series broadcast on C4 last fall and also aired an Educating Yorkshire Christmas special in December.

Educating Yorkshire One Year On, which broadcasts next month, was commissioned by David Brindley, C4 documentaries commissioning editor, and is exec produced by David Clews, Andrew Mackenzie-Betty and Gyles Neville for Twofour.

The Educating… series returns later this year on C4 with a new documentary series following a school in East London’s Walthamstow.

Last October, Twofour Group merged with Cardiff-based Boom Pictures in a deal worth £50m (US$85.6m).
