This research is about schools and inclusion and the experiences of young people. It is a case study based in and around a rural secondary school in the West Country. Using a range of data collection tools, the study investigates the role school plays in the lives of young people in an isolated rural community called Morton. Insights gathered from the young people have been used to scrutinise the systems, policy and practice of the secondary school. The data explore the connections the young people have in school and offers insight into how disconnection arises.
