Mr Hume added: “However, quite early on in the filming, it was clear that our students were adapting and becoming more adept at navigating difficult conversations on race.
“BAME pupils are still subjected to and offended by racist attitudes, so it’s imperative not to be complacent and keep working to eradicate prejudice and inequality.”
In the first episode, 11-year-old Henry was seen running out of the classroom crying after being separated from his non-white friends.
Taking to Twitter, one fan said: “Yep, already cried. 11-year-olds should not have to feel worried about their race and how that will impact their life.'”
Another added: “These kids are amazing. Henry could teach so many adults a lot of things.”
The School That Tried to End Racism continues next Thursday, July 2, at 9pm on Channel 4.
