Kate Stewart is a woman who has it all – perfect job, high income and a designer closet that anyone would envy.
The Liverpudlian is a self-made millionaire who thinks nothing o f splashing out on a £242,000 diamond bracelet.
She earned her first million at the age of 23 after leaving school as a single mum with no qualifications.
But in a new TV series , Kate is about to get a reality check as she goes back to the classroom as an undercover support worker in schools across the UK.
Faced with the realities of the cash-strapped education system a group of secret millionaires are seeking out students who have the potential to follow in their footsteps.
But before Kate can offer life-changing opportunities to both the students and the schools, she must get to grips with rowdy classrooms and emotional teenagers.
In the program, Kate leaves her property empire behind to go undercover as a support worker in a school in a deprived area of Sheffield.
She is shown the ropes by Jackie, one of the longest-serving members of the support team who has seen her role grow to cover two year groups as the school has been hit by budget cuts.
When a fight breaks out, Kate is forced to confront the realities of working in the school.
As headteacher Mrs Simcock says: “If you can work at Parkwood, you can work anywhere”.
In lessons, Kate’s attention is caught by 15-year-old Zain, whose disregard for school rules has led him close to expulsion.
Molly, a persistent truant, also catches Kate’s eye, as she tries to encourage her to engage in school.
The series starts this Thursday August 8 on Channel 4 at 9pm and Kate’s episode is on August 15.
