Boarders follows the lives of five underprivileged black students from inner-city London who win scholarships to an elite boarding school.

Stepping out of the urban metropolis and into a world they can only describe as something out of Harry Potter, the characters experience the highs and lows of boarding school: learning about themselves, their identity and what life on the other side looks like - which they discover is nothing like life in Zone 3.

From fun and independence to pressure and competition, first crushes, forging friendships and making enemies, Boarders looks at the experience of going to a top public school from a unique perspective. These kids may be outsiders but they're determined to prove themselves - and shake things up along the way. The new boarders have arrived.
