Peckham Finishing School for Girls is a British TV documentary series, broadcast in 2010 on BBC Three.[1][2]

The series followed four young women from privileged families[3] aged between 22 and 26,[4] featuring Stephanie, Serena, Claire and Cat, as they travelled to Peckham[5][6] to live with and experience the lifestyle of their new 'Peckham Sisters' Lashan, Kerri, Aleisha and Sarah, who come from much less affluent backgrounds.[7][8] In the series, the Peckham neighbourhood is portrayed as rough and dangerous.[9]
