Synopsis

Matt Bashir is promoted to the position of principal at a notoriously violent and difficult school in Sydney’s south-west. His radical approach to reform brings him into conflict on all fronts and leaves his personal life dangerously exposed. Just when it seems he is making progress, a 17-year-old student is found dead on school grounds. The Principal is a gritty, adult drama that examines themes of masculinity, identity and community in Australian society.
