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. Both pupils and teachers gave evidence to the Education Select Committee in June 2011.[1]

The lessons from the show are available through a dedicated YouTube channel,[2] which features David Starkey's history course and Simon Callow's drama lessons.

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.
