Jamie's Dream School is a seven-part British television documentary series made by Fresh One Productions, first aired on Channel 4. In it, Jamie Oliver enrols a group of teenagers with fewer than five GCSEs into his "Dream School" - a school in which lessons are taught by celebrities who are specialists in particular subjects. Participants, both pupils and teachers, gave evidence to the Education Select Committee in June 2011.[1]

The lessons from Jamie’s Dream School are available on-line a dedicated YouTube channel,[2] including David Starkey's history course and Simon Callow's drama lessons. Many are full-length videos as well as shorter clips and other interactive elements.

The school[edit]

An empty building was converted into a school for two months. In the grounds a biosphere was constructed for lessons on the environment.
