Hi

Can anyone help me? I vividly remember watching a documentary in the 1990's about a school in (I think) London that was called Sunny Hill, or maybe Sunny Side school.
They let the children decide what they wanted to learn and let them run amock. I've googled but the great google god doesn't seem to remember it.

It may have been a QED type programme that showed this documentary.

Help! It's driving me nuts!

I think you are thinking of Summerhill School, Summerhill at 70, an edition of Channel 4's Cutting Edge documentary series, was transmitted on 30 March 1992.

Probably Summerhill Smile

Its slightly more recent reputation was explored in a Guardian piece from 2007
