Syrian School is a unique five-part series which covers a year in the life of four schools in Damascus, a high pressure crossroads in the Middle East.
Lion Television was given unprecedented access to these schools, their staff and students – the first time this has ever been happened. The series reveals some remarkable characters, challenging the usual clichés of Arab life, and charts the highs and lows of the school year.
