A Cutting Edge documentary that looks at the impact, on both children and parents, when children are sent away from the family home not for bad behaviour – but for the sake of their education. We follow four eight-year-old girls as they adjust to a new life away from their parents and their home. Each of their parents has decided that their child will be better off boarding in a private school, in this instance Highfield, one of the best boarding schools in the UK. But how do they cope being separated from their families at such a young age? And how in particular do the mothers deal with the difficult decision of sending their offspring away to be educated?
