Singer Tulisa Contostavlos, from pop group N-Dubz has returned to the north London school where she struggled as a teenager while trying to study and care for her mother.

In her teens, she was a full-time carer for her mother, who suffered from mental illness, and she left school before taking any exams.

Deputy head Irene Foster said the school was now much better at spotting pupils in a similar situation.

Tulisa My Mum and Me is on BBC3 at 2100 BST on Tuesday 10 August 2010 and afterwards on BBC iPlayer.
