The wild ones

32 minutes

Skittish horses and troubled kids develop trust in an unlikely sanctuary

The Impact Pupil Referral Unit in Bootle near Liverpool provides a last chance for teenagers expelled from school to gain the qualifications they need in order to move on with their class. However, the students view the school not as an opportunity, but as an obligation, barely tolerating – and often disrupting – their lessons as they impatiently await the end of each day. The Wild Ones follows seven teenagers as they leave the classroom and begin an alternative learning programme at a sanctuary for rescued horses.
