The staff at Kings Langley Secondary School, near Watford, have bravely volunteered to take part in a world-first scientific investigation into work related stress among staff for Teachers TV.
Hermione Cockburn and a team of scientific experts descend on their school for a week to monitor and evaluate the stress levels of the workforce and attempt to answer the question; how stressed is their school?
This programme focuses on the science of stress, looking at DNA testing, pedometers, and a £2 million vest that allows scientists to remotely monitor a person's vital signs in real time.
Hermione is joined by stress experts Dr Mark Hamer and Professor Terry Looker. Together, they watch the school staff at work to see how their bodies respond to the demands of their jobs.
