Things are changing in the Yorkshire mill town of Ackley Bridge. Previously the Asian and white communities have rarely mixed. Now, as their two comprehensive schools have merged, lives and cultures are set to collide. With lessons about to be learnt in and out of the classroom, education may not be the first thing on the agenda.
