Leon got an hour to interview Katharine Birbalsingh at Michaela School in Brent. This is the full interview that forms part of Episode 1 - Can you handle the truth? Feedback via the usual channels.

The edit may appear to show that Katharine is being inconsistent when talking about the one exclusion at the school in 3 years. We would point out that the exclusion was not for bad behaviour.
