To Sir, With Love

T01897934742
"I believe one should fight for what one believes. Provided one is absolutely sure one is absolutely right." Based on an autobiographical novel, To Sir, With Love is an inspirational story of courage and hope. Ricky Braithwaite, a Cambridge graduate, arrives in London and soon learns what it is to be black in post-war England. As a teacher in a "failing" East End school, he must find a way into the hearts and minds of his unruly class to motivate and inspire the disillusioned and challenging teenagers. Teacher and pupils embark on a difficult journey as Ricky learns humility and understanding and his pupils learn to trust, respect and love this highly unusual man.
Author Ayub Khan-Din (based on the book by E R Braithwaite)

User Reviews

PM (22Sep13): Fantastic and uplifting performance from a wonderful cast. The story is a life lesson to us all, still accurate in today's life. This should be in all 6th forms curriculum and finish with a flourish on London West End Stage!
