The Class Next Door


(aka Class Of Mum And Dad)

The Class Next Door is a brilliantly funny and warm brand new factual entertainment series which sees a class full of parents being sent back to school for one half term. The twist – their kids are in the classroom next door.

Parents will discover what being an 11 year old child today is really like, revisit some of the highs and lows of their formative years, and maybe even put the odd old demon to rest. Shooting in a real school during the school term, and with real teachers, the extra class of parents will go through the same regime and curriculum as their children – from school uniforms and sitting exams to sex education and detention.

Each episode is driven by the warm and funny narratives of parents as they endure the daily routine of school all over again - and how they compare to their kids next door.
