International award winner, Choirmaster Gareth Malone teaches in a primary school in Essex in the UK for one term. His mission is to tackle the gap between girls’ and boys’ literacy and his final task is to tackle the boys’ number one enemy – writing.
In the second part of this final episode Gareth and the boys reach the all important performance. It’s been a tricky ride for Gareth as he nears the end of his experiment, but the culmination of his hard work is evident as the boys take to the stage in front of 400 or so family and friends.
At the same time he is heading towards a crucial test that will determine the success or failure of his time at the school and whether he has met the head teacher’s target of improving the boys’ reading age by six months in just eight weeks. When the results are in, they make fascinating reading.
