Jaime Taylor and Ed Owles shine a light on the British education system in this insightful and essential documentary about one boy’s struggle through secondary school.


For Harry, illiteracy is the norm: his dad can’t read or write; his grandfather couldn’t either. When he starts out at Feltham’s Reach Academy in East London, his father has high hopes of breaking the cycle. With its inventive teaching methods and one-on-one tutoring, Reach has a track record of helping children who arrive unable to spell even their own names. But Harry—who already has premonitions of life on the street—feels the weight of his background. His tutor Sophie must pull out all the stops to help him forge a better future.


Taylor and Owles capture Harry’s charm and down-to-earth personality, encouraging us to applaud his every success, however minor, even as he expresses boredom and frustration with a system that strikes him as pointless. More than that, they uncover the insurmountable obstacles lying in his path, in a country where one in five children still struggles to read by eleven.


Join us for this very special evening with intro and Q&A with Jaime Taylor and Ed Owles, which will be chaired by local entrepreneur Tom Pellereau.
