ower Hamlets School, Ian Mikardo, is the focus of a two part documentary on Channel 5 starting on Monday 29th September.
The documentary will show the struggle pupils go through when they join the school and how, supported by calm and committed staff, they make progress.
Cllr Danny Hassell, Labour's Schools Spokesperson for Tower Hamlets, said:
"Ian Mikardo is truly an outstanding school in every sense. The quality of teaching and learning as well as the pastoral care provided to these boys and their families is excellent. Tower Hamlets is very fortunate to have such a school in the borough.
"May I take this opportunity to extend my thanks to all the staff at the school for their work, going the extra mile and transforming the lives of the families that they work with."
