Following the success of Educating Essex and last year’s Educating Yorkshire, the series returns to the Frederick Bremer School in Walthamstow, an inner-city comprehensive with a diverse mix of students.

Fans of the show look unlikely to be disappointed judging by the trailer, which captures the warmth, goodwill and humour portrayed in the first two series.

In one scene shown in the teaser, a young boy is seen telling his teacher “I love you miss”, while another sees a teacher mock his students.

“This is not the time for ‘bant-er’, this is time for ‘work-er’,” he tells them during his class.

Episode one, which airs next week, follows the school’s newest teacher Mr Bispham as he tries to cope with educating his hormonal Year 9 English class. 

It also focuses on the story of student Acacia, a 14-year-old dealing with the challenges of teenage life as well as caring for her mum who is sick in hospital.

There will no doubt be a whole generation of Mr Drews and Musharaf Asghars to come.
