Charlie Hardwick said: “I'm absolutely over the moon to be joining Ackley Bridge, I was already a fan. It has fantastic characters and brilliantly sharp story-telling which tackles the desires and concerns of a diverse school of young people and their community head on, in full-beam. It's funny and moving in equal measures and has a huge heart. Unlike the new director of behaviour Sue Carp. She is belligerent and unwilling, and instead of dedicating her time to the well-being and development of her teenage students, she appears to be solely concerned with counting down the next ten years to her retirement. She is unwittingly witty though, and somewhat unintentionally anarchic, which gets the school into deep doodoo and herself into dangerously sackable situations. I can't wait to play her! “

Ackley Bridge is set in a Yorkshire mill town which is home to largely divided white and Asian populations. Like the communities, the school systems have also become segregated. However as two formerly isolated comprehensives are merged into a brand new academy, Ackley Bridge College, the lives and cultures of each are set to collide. The drama series was created by Ayub Khan Din, Kevin Erlis, and Malcolm Campbell and is produced by The Forge. The executive producers are George Ormond, George Faber, Alexander Lamb, Ayub Khan Din and Hugo Heppell. The directors are Penny Woolcock, Sarmad Masud, Rachna Suri and Dominic Leclerc.

‘The colours reflected the Indian heritage with a little nod to Scott’s Scottish family with the Eryngium (the blue thistle) and the style reflected the western ‘country’ style of rustic, loose arrangements.
Previously on Ackley Bridge: The final episode of the schools drama series.

Although the words gay and lesbian were thrown around a lot in this series, the word bisexual never entered the discussion regarding Cory. It should have. They really missed an opportunity to explore bisexuality. Living in Ackley Bridge is not an easy thing. The racial divide is obvious. The income disparity is obvious. The fact that Ackley Bridge College doesn’t explode from the tension says a lot about how the school is run and the people running it. <...> - by Old Ain't Dead - season 2 [Virginia DeBolt]
