School Swap: The Class Divide is a new two-part documentary in which ITV will look to find out if there really is a difference between state and private schools.

In a unique experiment, six students and the headteacher of a private school swap schools with their state counterparts to try to discover how big the difference between the two types of school is.

The swap will take place in The Bemrose School, a state school in Derby, and Warminster School, a Wiltshire private school.

The experiment will also look to explore whether or not state schools are really falling behind private ones. In addition to this, ITV will research the different social, economic and education changes and challenges both groups experience during the swap.

School Swap: The Class Divide will air as two hour-long episodes this Tuesday and the following Tuesday on ITV.

First shown on ITV, 9.00pm, Tuesday 18th August. Available until Thursday 17th September.
