Headteacher John Matthews speaks frankly about Brislington Enterprise College's struggle to cater for every child and the poor state of the school's buildings.

But in 2008 the Bristol school is to be replaced by a state-of-the-art college, designed to work as seven small schools in one.

A fresh teaching approach is being adopted to combine classes, and teach subjects through project-based work until the end of Key Stage 3.

Staff prepare for the challenge with regular meetings to discuss teaching techniques and to talk about any difficulties they may encounter.
