Cameras go behind the scenes of Harrow School
A historic school which has educated prime ministers and Sherlock Holmes will be the focus of a new eight-part documentary series.
Harrow School is the focus of the Sky documentary which went behind the scenes of the historic institution during the 2012/2013 academic year.
Cameras followed the day to day life of West Acre, which is one of the school's 12 houses, and the 66 pupils who live there during the academic year.
The programme’s makers hope the series will give an in depth look at the prestigious school which has among its past pupils Prime Minister Winston Churchill and actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
The school was founded in 1572 by John Lyon, a farmer in the area, under the Royal Charter granted by Queen Elizabeth I.
Other famous former pupils of the school include King Hussein of Jordan, poet Lord Byron and writer Anthony Trollope.
